I will be arriving in Liberia on July 18 and staying in Costa Rica for 3 weeks. I was wanting to celebrate in the Annexation of Guanacaste festivities, but I'm not sure what to expect. I've heard that it's a two week long celebration with lots of activity on the weekends. Is there a schedule of activities? Is it necessary for me to stay in Liberia area until the 25th or will I have seen enough to appreciate the celebrations if I leave the area on the Sunday, the 22nd or the 23rd? Also, where are best places to see activities and how do I get there? I haven't made sleeping arrangements yet, but I was considering Tamarindo and taking shuttle or bus in, or staying at a B&B near Liberia center. Any suggestions?
