One of the most popular provinces in Costa Rica, Guanacaste is home to pristine shorelines, beautiful mountain ranges and a number of volcanoes.

The government had incorporated temporary solutions over the years but identified that a private company would need to be contracted to expand and operate the airport in the future.
