Exhausted all tourist activities in Santa Cruz? There's always Parque Bernabela Ramos.

Head to Veintisiete de Abril, 8 miles out of Santa Cruz. It's the home of Casino Diria and Canopy Vista Tamarindo. Monkey Park and Tamarindo Church are more sights. These are about 10 miles out of Santa Cruz, in Canafistula.

When it's time to explore beyond Santa Cruz, check out a regional hub. Nicoya sits 13 miles away and offers a varied list of attractions, like Nicoya Colonial Church, Barra Honda National Park and Recaredo Briceno Park. Puerto Carrillo and Iglesia de San Blas are some of the other places that are worth visiting.

Prepare your taste buds to go on an adventure through the flavors and aromas of North Pacific Coast.

Travelers will no doubt notice an abundance of pork and chicken, two of the more well-known regional ingredients.

Follow the locals' lead and dine on casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

For a sweet encounter that will leave your mouth watering, try tres leches (custard flan), a delectable dessert.

If sampling a bottle or three of the local beer is high up on your to-do list, make a beeline for the nearest watering hole and order a round of Bavaria

If alcohol's not for you, fresco de frutas (fruit shake) is a nice alternative.

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

Authentic traveling goes beyond just seeing the sights. It's also about the words, stories and ideas of a culture. Your vacation will be far more significant if you attempt to learn a couple of common expressions and greetings in Spanish. ¡Que pase un buen día! translates to have a nice day. There's also Bien gracias, ¿y tú, which translates to fine thanks, and you.

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

We all wish vacations went on forever. However, you're going to have to say "Adiós" to Santa Cruz at some point. At least once you get back home you'll have loads of wonderful stories to tell!

Don't fret about missing your flight. Just keep in mind that the nearest airport is 25 miles to the north.
