San Carlos Vacations

San Carlos is set in a popular part of Northern Plains, a region that's home to delightful forests, lakes and active volcanos.

Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a limited view into the wider personality of a region. So be sure to visit Northern Plains' other cultural and natural attractions. Alajuela, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Santa Rita, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest of San Carlos are also worth visiting should you have the time.

Alajuela, is another interesting spot to visit. It is 19 miles (31 kilometers) from San Carlos and offers a number of interesting points of interest, like Parque Nacional Juan Castro Blanco, ARA Project and Zoo Ave. Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto and Central Park are also good to visit.

Stop by Northern Plains' popular traditional villages, it's a good way to familiarize yourself with the area's colorful history.

No vacation is really complete without a bit of rest and relaxation. Shore fishing is one of the ways they relax here. In this region and wildlife watching is another.

The real meaning of a region resides not just within its mountains, but also within its words. Taking the time to memorize just a few everyday Spanish words and phrases will make your time in Northern Plains all the more rewarding. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is a good example. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" And also "Este caballero pagará por todo", which translates as "This gentleman will pay for everything"

When it's time to leave, bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the people you've got to know and the places you've spent time.
