Santa Rita

"Bienvenidos" to Santa Rita, Northern Plains, a part of the world cherished for its picturesque forests, lakes, active volcanos and caves.

Santa Rita Vacation Packages

From Santa Rita, it's approximately 55 miles south to San Jose and 65 miles south to Cartago.

Not too far from Santa Rita you'll find Boca Tapada, 3 miles to the southwest, and Hacienda Tres Amigos, 9 miles to the southwest. These destinations are also worth a visit, if you have the time to spare.

About 20 miles to the southeast of Santa Rita is Sarapiqui, an important regional center where travelers can find San Agustin Church, Costa Rica Nature Pavilion and San Juan–La Selva Biological Corridor. Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Mixto Maquenque and Costa Rican Bird Route are also great options if you have time for more.

No getaway could be considered complete without experiencing a good dose of leisure time. Shore fishing and bird watching are two fun ways to take it easy while you're here.

Enjoy a break from seeing the sights and spend some time wind surfing and kite surfing.

Take a trip to the region's craft workshops. These cultural hotspots are popular among visitors, especially when the weather is less than perfect.

If the weather is good, pack up the car and head outdoors to explore the region's open-air markets.

Take in the atmosphere as you learn about past events at the historic sites of Northern Plains. You're not going to regret heading out on the trip to its traditional villages.

In order to truly grasp the soul of Northern Plains, you need to acquaint yourself with its signature scents and tastes.

To discover the real essence of the region, make sure to seek out popular ingredients like pork and chicken.

Don't pack your bags for home prior to sampling casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

Sample some tres leches (custard flan) at the conclusion of your meal. This exquisite dessert is perfect for sweet tooths.

Most bars will have Bavaria on offer. Order a few pints with your pals and find out why this beer is a local favorite.

Looking for a beverage that's alcohol free? Fresco de frutas (fruit shake), is a good alternative.

Regarded as one of the most beloved local spirits, Ron Centenario is something you have to try at least once.

Seasoned travelers understand that an excellent way to get the most out of a journey is to memorize some relevant words and phrases in the native language. Bien gracias, ¿y tú? is Spanish for fine thanks, and you. ¡Buena suerte! is also good to know. It translates to good luck.

If you're planning to visit on the 15th of September, you better be ready to party. Every year on this day, the entire nation comes together to celebrate Independence Day.

It'll be hard to say "Adiós" to Santa Rita, but find comfort in the fact that this special part of the world will always be here waiting for you to one day make your way back.

When it's time to get your flight home, head toward the nearest airport, which is 50 miles to the south.
