Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Atenas, Costa Rica your home away from home

This is the capital of the Atenas province of the Republic of Costa Rica. Costa Rica is said to be Spanish for ‘rich coast’ and Atenas is certainly well-endowed when it comes to tourist attractions. It boasts vivid landscapes painted green by swathes of coffee plantations and patches of forest with pale blue hills undulating in the distance. 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.

Things to do on holiday to Atenas, Costa Rica

Ambling through the Atenas countryside admiring the green carpets of fertile farms while drinking of the excellent warm clime is in itself an excellent way of spending a day here. The place is a vibrant agricultural commune and produces plenty of coffee and fruits. Visitors will fall in love with the simplicity of Atenas life where the people hold on to strong traditions and everyone knows everyone by name. Locals benefit from fresh food items sold in the market and visitors can try out the locally-made cheese among other kinds of fresh produce.

Visitors should also make a point of visiting the town as there is plenty to see and do there as well. The park in the heart of the city is a brilliant place to unwind and enjoy the quiet beauty of nature. While relaxing there visitors have the chance of spotting the odd green parrot or toucan. Avid shoppers can check out what there is to buy in the fashionable malls and have a meal in the tiny local cafes for their troubles.

Places to visit on holiday to Atenas, Costa Rica

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.

Weather in Atenas, Costa Rica

According to the locals, Atenas has the best climate in the world and on visiting this resort, few holidaymakers will argue with that statement. It is nice and warm, and not uncomfortably so, throughout the year. Every month, temperature averages of around 27°C are recorded. In March and April these temperatures rise slightly, but other than that the weather is fairly predictable. September and October sees Atenas receive plenty of rainfall; over 250mm.

Travel to Atenas, Costa Rica

Those travelling to Atenas will most likely use the Juan Santamaria International Airport which is just over half an hour from the resort. It welcomes traffic from all over the world, being the main airport serving San Jose, the country’s capital.
