The addition of direct flights from the USA to Liberia about a decade ago has transformed the northwest Pacific region of Costa Rica. Our area is the most popular destination for tourists in Costa Rica, a country known for its tourism industry. Major international hotel chains, such as the Four Seasons, J.W. Marriott, Hilton, etc. have opened resorts. Lots of vacation homes and condos have been built. All of this is made possible by the fact that it is just one hour from the Liberia airport to the beach resorts.
These airport terminal buildings, shown today from the window of an airliner, are very basic. The terminal is functional, but not impressive. We will explore this subject a little further in the next few days.
This week we are showing photos of San Pedro de Atacama, the main town in the Atacama desert of northern Chile, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
