Places to Visit on Holiday in Alajuela Region, Costa Rica

Whilst enjoying your holidays in Alajuela region, there are a few attractions that you should try your best to visit in the main city of Alajuela itself. The Alajuela Cathedral is an amazing architectural delight and a building that will quite simply leave you speechless. You may also be able to visit the crater of an actual volcano in this part of Central America - The Poas Volcano. You really ought to try your best to visit the national capital of San Jose, as your self catering accommodation in Alajuela region is likely to be situated so close. San Jose offers some great attractions for the whole family: for the younger ones, there is The Happy Hollow Park and Zoo and The Children’s Museum which they will absolutely love. There are an amazing number of museums for the adults, too, covering a very diverse range of artefacts: there is an Egyptology museum, a museum devoted to textiles and some great national museums and art galleries proudly displaying the history and culture of this Central American country.

Weather in Alajuela Region, Costa Rica

As we have already stated above, your holidays in Alajuela region will be spent enjoying one of the best climates on the planet. This is because the general climate of Costa Rica is sub-tropical. In this area, the lowest average temperature of the year will be in January when it falls to a still very pleasant 15 degrees Celsius. This rises to a peak of 30 degrees in August. If you prefer completely dry holidays, the best time of the year to travel is between May and September, when there is an average rainfall of zero - now you cannot argue with that statistic!

Travel to Alajuela Region, Costa Rica

Travellers on their holidays to Alajuela region will need to rely on the country’s largest airport - San Jose Juan Santamaria (SJO). Unfortunately, as with much of Central America, this part of the world is very poorly connected with the United Kingdom. The only way of getting to Costa Rica from the UK is to fly with Iberian Airways to Madrid and connect with the direct service to San Jose.
