In June 2007, the club was bought largely (90% of the shares) by Mario Sotela (linked to the Sotela-blen family) and were renamed Liberia Mía (My Liberia) after a Sotela project located in Liberia that is called "Zoológico África Mía" (it is a special zoo based only on African animals and species).
In 2009, Liberia Mía won the Verano championship title, but it proved to be a short-lived party when in July 2010, the club just renamed again to Águilas Guanacastecas (Guanacastecan Eagles), were demoted to the Segunda División de Costa Rica after trading franchise rights with Barrio México. The move was regarded by some as controversial since Barrio México club president Mínor Vargas was allegedly also involved with Liberia. Also, it was the second time a Guanacaste team was sold and moved outside the province after Guanacasteca's franchise was taken by Brujas de Escazú in 2004.
In summer 2011, after Barrio México was expelled from the Primera División, Liberia played in the second division as Los Coyotes del Municipal Liberia, replacing AD Desamparados whose franchise was bought by Liberia's new owner Manrique Sibaja. The club has been playing in the second division ever since.
