Nicoya City

Nicoya is the major town of the Nicoya Peninsula and the cultural center of the province of Guanacaste. It was Costa Rica's first colonial city and features the oldest church in Costa Rica.
The San Blas parish church was founded in 1644 and houses today a small museum with ancient religious artifacts. In front of the church is the small but lovely central park of Nicoya. It is shaded by huge old trees and is a favorite place for meeting and relaxing in the middle of the commercial center.

People from the whole surrounding area, including beach villages nearby, come to Nicoya on a regular basis to do their shopping or to deal with their legal and banking needs. The town also hosts the court, and the biggest hospital of the Nicoya Peninsula. Despite its great importance, Nicoya is still a small and pleasant town.
