Liberia and Guanacaste Neighborhoods

Central Downtown/Old Town

Liberia is a sprawling residential town, but most of the interesting things to do are centralized within this district. Here you'll find a variety of restaurants, archetypal urban green spaces, historic churches and beautiful museums. Check out Restaurante los Comales for cozy local fare or La Mesa de Monique y Andre if you're craving something sophisticated and creative. Meanwhile, Museo de Guanacaste is perfect for learning about the region's ancient history, and don't miss Parque Mario Canas Ruiz for exuberant festivities or Parque Hector Zuniga Rovira to rest in the shade of Costa Rica's iconic guanacaste tree.

Moracia

Like most neighborhoods in Liberia, Moracia is mostly residential — with plenty of suburban homes, schools and even a local hospital — and is just a short walking distance from the Central Downtown district. However, it is also home to Estadio Edgardo Baltodano Briceño, a popular fútbol (soccer) stadium. It may not necessarily be a big-league venue, but this buzzing 6,000-seat stadium is still worth a visit on game day when it's packed with local spectators. Before or after the game, check out La Terracita for a mason-jar brownie milkshake, or sip a delectable cuppa joe.
