Cd Neily is another interesting option. It's about 8 miles away, and is home to Las Cavernas de Corredores and Paradise Tropical Garden.

Don't forget to make a day trip to Paso Ancho. It's about 35 miles to the east of Rio Claro and it has some fantastic visitor attractions, such as Volcan Baru National Park, Finca Dracula Orchid Sanctuary and Arte Cruz Volcán. Área Silvestre Protegida Lagunas de Volcán and Barriles are some more places that will keep you busy.

Spoil your taste buds in the region's numerous dining establishments.

A wonderful meal is dependent upon the quality of its ingredients. Luckily, the pork and chicken are amongst the world's best.

Casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken) are two meals you might like to try.

For a sweet encounter that will leave you wanting more, try tres leches (custard flan), a delectable dessert.

Gather your friends and order a round or two at one of the local bars. Don't even bother with the drinks list. If beer is what you're looking for, Bavaria is a no-brainer.

If you're out and about for the evening, be sure to try out a glass of Ron Centenario, a favorite spirit.

The true spirit of a place resides not just within it's monuments and mountains, but also within its language. Picking up a smattering of handy words and phrases in Spanish will make your stay much more meaningful. No comprendo is the Spanish way of saying I don't understand. Cheers/good health! is another great one to have at your disposal, so practice pronouncing ¡Salud.

A lively day of national celebration, Independence Day is something you won't want to miss. It takes place each year on the 15th of September.

After you've spent your last colones and it comes time to head home, don't forget to say a final "Adiós" to Rio Claro.
