Mata de Cana Vacation Packages

Mata de Cana is situated approximately 65 miles away from San Jose and 80 miles from Cartago.

Stretch your legs and go for a walk by the water. Herradura Beach, 60 miles to the south, and Organos Beach, 50 miles to the south, are two great options.

Put on your comfortable shoes and take a trip to La Fortuna Waterfall, located 14 miles from Mata de Cana. Another great option is Ecotermales Fortuna, which is 12 miles away.

Want to check out Arenal Hanging Bridges and Captain Ron's Lake Arenal Fishing Tours? They're in Arenal, roughly 2 miles out of Mata de Cana. You could also try Monteverde Frog Pond and FlyZone Wakeboard School in Tronadora. This destination rests 5 miles away from Mata de Cana.

About 9 miles to the southeast of Mata de Cana is El Fosforo, an important regional center which is home to Cerro Chato Lake, Tabacon Hot Springs and Arenal Volcano National Park. Costa Rica Sky Adventures and Butterfly Conservatory are two more choices available here.

Don't miss the opportunity to take your senses on a tour of the region's favorite food and drinks.

Of the many ingredients you'll uncover during your dining discovery, pork and chicken are among the most prized.

Casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken) are examples of specialty dishes with their own unique flavors.

Mouthwatering treats, such as tres leches (custard flan), are certainly worth a try.

Pull up a bar stool at one of the local bars and take a load off with a round of beers. If you ask for the local favorite, the bartender will probably pour you a Bavaria.

If you're in the mood for something non-alcoholic, fresco de frutas (fruit shake) is a good option.

If you're looking for a drink with a bit more of a kick to it, Ron Centenario should hit the spot.

Maybe one of the most practical gestures you can offer to the locals you meet on your travels is to put in the effort to familiarize yourself with some of their language. Muchas gracias is Spanish for thank you. ¡Hola! (hello) is another one to know.

If you're planning to be here on the 15th of September, you should get ready to party. On this day each year, the whole country comes together and celebrates Independence Day.

As your vacation draws to a close, spend your leftover colones on a few little keepsakes and say a heartfelt "Adiós" to this unique destination and the characters who call it home.

Don't fret about missing your flight. Just be sure to remember that the nearest airport is 45 miles to the west.
