Consider using Mata de Cana as a base for further adventures. This popular region has been blessed with a wealth of interesting sights and attractions. El Tanque and Chachagua are just two of the many other places worth seeing while you're in Northern Plains.
About 15 miles (24 kilometers) to the east of Mata de Cana is Fortuna, a regional center and the home of Miravalles Volcano, Reno's International Mini Golf and Arenal Natura Ecological Park. Fortuna has lots to offer travelers willing to hang around here a little longer. Ecotermales Fortuna, Termales Los Laureles and Arenal Adventure World are just some of the places worth a visit.
Enjoy a little local culture with a little sunshine and fresh air at the region's fabulous open-air markets.
This area has a number of great places to enjoy kite surfing, so make sure you leave room in your schedule to fit it in. Fishing is another popular watersport here.
Ensuring you have the time to know some handy phrases in Spanish often separates the enlightened travelers from the tourist hordes. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" means "Would you like to dance with me?" "Este caballero pagará por todo" translates to "This gentleman will pay for everything"
As your time here draws to an end, spend what's left of your colones on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the characters you have met and the places you've seen.
