Things to Do on Holiday in Alajuela, Costa Rica

You absolutely cannot even contemplate spending your holidays in Alajuela, and Costa Rica in general, if you have not ventured here to explore some of the amazing rainforest ecosystems that may be found throughout the area. The abundantly rich plant and animal life in the forests are always best enjoyed by way of an organised tour - these habitats are most safely encountered with experienced professionals.

Weather in Alajuela, Costa Rica

You can look forward to being completely spoilt, as far as the weather on your holidays in Alajuela is concerned. The area enjoys a typical sub-tropical climate; this means that the average temperature never drops below 15 degrees Celsius during January.

Travel to Alajuela, Costa Rica

The nearest airport for your holidays in Alajuela will be situated very close in San Jose (SJO). Getting to this part of Central America is not particularly easy from the UK, however. In fact, there are no direct flights here from our country. You would need to catch an Iberian Airways flight from London Heathrow (LHR) to Madrid and then rely on the direct flight from Spain.

The rolling hills that extend into the horizon from the property's backyard spoil your appetite to taste other adventures Costa Rica has to offer...why visit a cloud forest when you live in one? And, the beauty of this home absolutely ruins your patience to stay in any other vacation home less exceptional than this house. This house sits furthest out on the best slice of land in the community so no other rooftop adulterates the view of the magnificent Atenas mountains. You feel like you are the only person in the world with the safe satisfaction of a small, friendly community of home-owners right behind you. The decor of the house is minimal and craftful and every turn offers another opportunity to enjoy the goodness of life. And that's all before leaving the house! The drive from Atenas to San Jose offers panoramic views of Costa Rica Pura Vida and you find yourself downtown in less than an hour. The drive to the Pacific side (Jaco/Manuel Antonio) provides equally impressive views ending in beautiful beaches and national parks less than 90 minutes away. Local fruit and vegetable stands abound in either direction, so there is always a chance to buy the best avocados on your way to and from home. The location of this house gives you the best chance to experience Costa Rica's coasts, volcanos, and local life and still be home to grill yourself a nice steak and take in the gorgeous city lights from a far, far distance. The stars and moon at night, are of course unparallel. I should stop here for fear of seeming unauthentic, but it's all true. Come experience it for yourself. You'll leave a different person." Thanks so much for opening up this sweet serenity to my family Diana, and best of luck with future renters.
