El Castillo Vacation Packages

Enjoy the forests, lakes and active volcanos in and around El Castillo in picturesque and popular Northern Plains, Costa Rica.

At the very least, see the Butterfly Conservatory when spending time in El Castillo.

Vacationing in this popular part of the country is about discovering new things, so why don't you go on a little road trip and explore some of the other fascinating destinations dotted around El Castillo. Interesting places within a relatively short distance of El Castillo are Tajo Alto, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north, and Muelle San Carlos, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west.

Fortuna is about 8 miles (13 kilometers) from El Castillo. This center contains a wide range of attractions, like Ecotermales Fortuna, Miravalles Volcano and Arenal Volcano National Park. Reno's International Mini Golf, Arenal Natura Ecological Park and Arenal Adventure World are other good spots to visit.

Experience a little local culture amid the great outdoors at Northern Plains' open-air markets.

Signing up for one of the guided nature walks is a good way to understand about Northern Plains.

Travel is so much more than simply taking in the sights, it's also about the words, stories and ideas of a region. Your time in Northern Plains will become all the more rewarding if you take the time to try a few everyday words and phrases in Spanish. Gaining an understanding of a smattering of practical sentences, such as "¿Querría bailar conmigo?", or "Would you like to dance with me?", could make your trip more memorable. "Este caballero pagará por todo" ("This gentleman will pay for everything") is another useful one.

At the end of your vacation, say a fond Adiós (farewell) to the new friends you've made and the places you've spent time.
