Ballena Vacation Packages
Don't restrict yourself to Ballena, because the wider region contains plenty of natural and cultural attractions waiting to be explored. Isla Violin and Buenos Aires are two other places worth seeing while you're in Central Pacific Coast.
Organise transportation and visit Cartago, a major city for the region, situated 45 miles (72 kilometers) away from Ballena. This regional center has a wide range of attractions, such as Turrialba Volcano National Park, Parque Nacional Volcan Irazu and Monumento Nacional Guayabo. Parque Nacional Tapanti and Our Lady of the Angels Basilica are other good spots to visit.
There are times when one of the most effective ways to truly dig below the veneer of a destination is by using the knowledge of the locals. This region has some interesting guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours.
Get a feel for the variety of cuisines in Central Pacific Coast by sampling a selection of local dishes. Why don't you try pargo (red snapper) or ceviche (marinated raw fish)? Both dishes are popular in this region.
When it's time to leave, say a fond Adiós (farewell) to the new friends you've made and the landscapes you've seen.
