And when they go into the city, visitors will find that Atenas is far from lacking in well-stocked stores and shopping malls. The beach is less than an hour away. Small wonder many foreigners have decided to make this locale their home. But for those simply on holiday there are a number of options as regards a holiday home; rural houses, opulent villas, large country houses, all boasting spectacular views and neat compounds.

The city of Alajuela, of which Atenas is a part, is replete with natural reserves. One of the more intriguing of these is the Poás Volcano National Park which, as the name suggests, contains an active volcano. There is plenty of evidence of this activity in hot springs and geysers around the craters and periodic emissions of sulphuric gas. But one of the inactive craters holds a breathtaking lake surrounded by lush greenery.
