If you do not have plans for this weekend, the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT, as per its acronym in Spanish) invites you to enjoy these free and low-cost options. The options range from spending the day at the beach, having a picnic at a viewpoint, and even taking a tour in the Poás area, Valverde Vega and its surroundings.
“Costa Rica has many options that invite Costa Ricans to live unforgettable experiences and we recommend that you go out and enjoy what our country has to offer; whether it be the beach, mountain, adventure, city, forest, among much more,” assured Alberto López, General Manager of ICT.
You can enjoy the impressive and historical Ujarrás Ruins, as well as viewpoints where the beauty of the Orosí Valley landscape can be admired. Close to this same area, only a few minutes away, you can enjoy Charrara Pura Vida, which is a nature park.
If you would like a little getaway to the beach, the touristic location, Playas de Doña Ana, offers a beautiful beach with an ecological blue flag and many natural attractions.
Moreover, you can enjoy many tourist attractions in the Poás area, Vara Blanca, Fraijanes, Poasito and Valverde Vega, which are areas particularly effected by the closure of Poás Volcano National Park. Visitors can take advantage of trying the local cuisine, taking a strawberry tour, visiting the dairy farm, admiring the volcano plume, visiting many waterfalls and even fishing for trout, among many other activities that will allow you to help revive the area.
