Islita Vacation Packages

From Islita, San Jose is about 90 miles to the east, and Cartago is approximately 100 miles east.

Dip your toes in the salty water at one of the local beaches. Head to Jaco Beach, 55 miles to the east, or Herradura Beach, 55 miles to the east.

Adventurous types pass through this region for its exquisite natural spaces. Discover the magic for yourself at Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and Barra Honda National Park, 30 miles and 20 miles from Islita, respectively.

Although you may be only here for a short time, locals strongly suggest that you see The ARA Project and Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Camaronal.

Make the trip to Corozalito. It's roughly 2 miles away from Islita, and where you can find San Miguel Beach and Jungle Butterfly Farm. Carrillo Beach and Samara Beach are some additional sights. These are about 5 miles from Islita, in Carrillo.

Garza, a regional hub, is another interesting place to visit. It's approximately 17 miles from Islita and is home to a wide range of decent visitor attractions, including Garza Beach, Safari Surf School and Nosara Beach. Frog Pad and Nosara Wildlife Rescue are other sites that you won't want to miss.

What's the point of having a vacation without sampling some delicious food? North Pacific Coast is a prime place to stimulate your senses!

Of the many ingredients you'll uncover during your tasting tour, pork and chicken are among the most important.

Of course, your vacation wouldn't be complete if you don't have a taste of casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

Why not taste some tres leches (custard flan)? This scrumptious treat will satisfy your sugar cravings.

Take a moment out and loosen up with a Bavaria. This thirst-quenching beer is a classic choice with the locals.

If you are in need of a non-alcoholic beverage, one option is fresco de frutas (fruit shake).

You might see a few locals delighting over a glass of Ron Centenario, a much-loved liquor here.

Communicate with the people you meet by familiarizing yourself with some Spanish. ¿Cómo estás? is Spanish for how are you. I don't understand is another great one to have in your arsenal, so try pronouncing No comprendo.

Visiting on the 15th of September will get you a first-hand impression of Independence Day.

As your time here draws to a close, use any leftover colones on last-minute keepsakes and say a heartfelt "Adiós" to this unique destination and its people.

When it's time to get your flight, remember that the nearest airport is approximately 50 miles to the north.
