Ultimate adventure hotel Hacienda Guachipelin in Guanacaste, Costa Rica is a great place for a much-deserved vacation after Ironman Costa Rica 2017.

For the first time in history, the famous Ironman competition is coming to Costa Rica in June 2017.

The Ironman 70.3 Costa Rica triathlon is set for June 18, 2017 at Playas del Coco, one of Costa Rica’s most popular beaches in the Guanacaste region.

While this is the first time the world famous Ironman endurance competition is happening here, Costa Rica is no stranger to extreme adventure races.

The award-winning Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin is only 15.5 miles (25 km) northeast of Guanacaste’s main city of Liberia, providing easy access to the Liberia International Airport.

IRONMAN 70.3 Costa Rica 2017

Also known as a Half Ironman, the Ironman 70.3 is one of a series of long distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC). The number 70.3 refers to the total distance in miles (113.0 km) covered in the race that involves a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim, a 56-mile (90 km) bike ride, and a 13.1-mile (21.1 km) run, said the WTC. The segment distances are half of those in a full Ironman triathlon. More than 2,000 competitors have already registered for the race.

“With its beautiful natural landscape and indigenous flora and fauna, Costa Rica is the ideal place to host an IRONMAN 70.3 race,” said Ironman organizers.

A lodging option near the race site at Playas del Coco is Hotel Bosque del Mar, an Enchanting Hotel of Costa Rica. The beachfront boutique hotel is located on the neighboring beach of Playa Hermosa in Guanacaste.
