Liberia refers to the capital as well as the largest city in Guanacaste province. It is locally known as “la ciudad blanca” which when loosely translated to English is taken to mean the white city due to the practice by its residents to use white gravel to make the roads of the city as well as the white washed colonial houses. Some of the cities that lie in close proximity to the city of Liberia include San Jose, Managua, Tegucigalpa, Soyapango and San Salvador.
