What to do?

Volcan Irazú National Park

 
 
Volcanoes will always be a tourist interest due to their unique behavior and form characteristics, in every place of the world. 
 
In our country, Volcán Irazú National Park exists and it is currently “active”. It is located in Cartago, a province characterized for its very different weather and landscape compared to the other provinces. The trip to get to this National Park is quick and easy, because it is situated at 32 kilometers northward from Cartago City.  
 
Its peak has various craters and one of them has an amazing green lake, ideal to take photos of it. This is one of the most popular tourist points to visit in Costa Rica. 
During the route to get to the Park, or when you are in your route coming back from it, you can find many little restaurants of typical food to have lunch or to stop there for your coffee time.
 
This place is doubtlessly in your list!!!

A Blue-Colored Special Place: Río Celeste (light blue river)

 
When you visit Costa Rica during your vacation, it is probably that you would make an itinerary before your visit to distribute your days. For this reason, I bring you this interesting tour made by Costa Ricans (“Ticos”) and it is enjoyed very much by them. 
 
Today’s chosen place for an interesting tour is “Río Celeste”, located at Guatuso, in Alajuela Province and situated in Volcán Tenorio National Park. This National Park is formed by the confluence of “Buena Vista” River and “Quebrada Agria” River. These rivers are located in Volcán Tenorio’s mountainside. 
 
This tour will give you, from the beginning, a relaxing experience for your eyesight, due to the fact that everything starts taking a walk to go to the waterfall. This walk is not complicated and in the meantime, in the forest’s trail you can observe a great diversity of vegetation and beautiful tall trees.
 
In fact, the tour guides recommend you to “embrace them” during the journey. This action would produce us a personal peace and relaxation feeling. As you can see in the pictures, this is an impressive river for its coloring: a unique blue at your view.

A song for the times!

 

Roberto Lugari is an architect, who loves his other ability to compose and produce “música electronica” (electronic music).

Recently, he surprised us with his new song, titled “Quarantine 2020”. This successful production is instrumental with voices in English. The video has subtitles available in English and Spanish.

Even with the Pandemic, he launched this catchy piece.  Dj Lugari says “the purpose of producing this song is because we are living in a time where the Pandemic has changed our lifestyle”.

He wants to bring attention to how each of us can be filled with energy and positivity during these challenging times.  

Have a listen to it.

A place for people...who love horses and local tourism


You like horses and the energy given by riding. Today, we bring for you an interesting recommendation located at Platanar de Florencia in Ciudad Quesada, a place that belongs to Alajuela Province. It is better known as the “Northern Touristic Zone” due to the fact that it is nearby Arenal Volcano. “Ralunas de San Carlos” is the name of this interesting local country estate that offers to the tourist a perfect place to ride and know more about horses, including other kinds of cattle. 

According to what Mr. Manuel, its owner, told us, this project’s idea was born from his father. From a simple cattle farm, a little place for rural tourism was started to be developed where the visitors can enjoy the nature and the fauna of the place. This country estate has a mountain and the pleasure of enjoying the fresh water that flows through some trails, and of course, enjoying the clean air.

The most taken tour is the one in which you ride a horse from 60 to 120 minutes, guided by people who know the country estate. This tour includes contemplating wide pastures, the mountain, rivers, and typical local animals of the zone. For Mr. Manuel, his phrase is “Living a different day in harmony with nature.”

Another activity of this place is that it offers the local food service. This means that you eat the typical or local zone’s food, including the Costa Rican delicious desserts. You can take a tour to visit the sugar cane press, to see when the cows are milked, to see how the cattle is fed, to see the local agriculture’s plantation, to see the trees’ plantation, and take Spanish lessons. This place has cattle to get milk and meat; it has pigs growing up, sheep, horses, and chicks.   Schedule: Monday-Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The prices are from $35 or higher.
