El Tanque Vacation Packages
While it may be tempting to simply sit back and relax when holidaying in El Tanque, remember, Northern Plains' treasure-trove of natural and man-made attractions lie just beyond your doorstep. Mata de Cana and Angeles are two more places worth seeing while you're in Northern Plains.
Fortuna is 4 miles (6 kilometers) from El Tanque. This center offers a wide range of things to see and do, like Arenal Volcano National Park, Reno's International Mini Golf and Arenal Natura Ecological Park. Termales Los Laureles, Arenal Adventure World and Ecotermales Fortuna are also good places to spend time.
If you have great weather, take the time to experience Northern Plains' open-air markets.
When you need a break, try bird watching or shore fishing.
Charm the people you meet in Northern Plains, by learning parts of Spanish. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is handy. "Este caballero pagará por todo" means "This gentleman will pay for everything"
If you're traveling in the region on the 15th of September, join the party during the nation-wide Independence Day celebrations.
When it comes time to pack your bag and say "Adiós" to El Tanque, you'll take with you plenty of plenty of good memories.
Accommodation in El Tanque
As El Tanque doesn't have any accommodations featured on Expedia's extensive Costa Rica hotel booking database, travelers might like to stay at The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal or the Nayara Hotel Spa & Gardens, two comfortable options located 5 miles (7 kilometers) away in Fortuna. If you're after something a bit more budget-friendly, the Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa or the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort are also recommended.
