Carate

Get ready to say hello to exciting adventures and friendships during your break in Carate, located in South Pacific Coast.

Accommodation in Carate

Travelocity's helpful Carate lodging guide is what you need when you're heading to the area. Book early, since there are only a handful of accommodations available.

The Lookout Inn Lodge and LagunaVista Villas are possibilities in this location.

Carate Vacation Packages

Carate can be reached from two of the region's most noteworthy cities. You'll discover Cartago 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the north and San Jose about 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the northwest.

Once you have spent some time in Carate, go deeper into the region and discover the seaside. Make the journey 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Carate to find Playa Cacao, or 13 miles (21 kilometers) east to Pan Dulce Beach.

It is vital for our body and soul that every once in a while we get out into nature. It's just 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Carate to Parque Nacional de Fauna Silvestre Golfito, while Piedras Blancas National Park is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) away.

If you want to get more out of your vacation, make a stop at Carate Beach.

Add something extra to your trip by going to La Tarde Wildlife Area and Corcovado National Park in Sirena, which is 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the northwest. That said, you may also want to spend some time in nearby Puerto Jimenez. Corcovado National Park Office and Puerto Jimenez Pier are additional sights you might like to see while there.

Just northwest of Carate is where you'll find Drake Bay, which boasts several fun attractions, like Drake Bay Beach, Drake Bay Hiking Trailhead and San Josecito Beach. For more fun, check out School & Soccer Field and Bajo del Diablo.

Find out about the traditions of this region's culinary customs. Make your traveling experience complete by heading to some of the local dining places.

Experience some of the flavors of this region by sampling dishes featuring the popular local ingredients, pork and chicken.

Investigate the local cuisine with an open mind by sampling regional dishes, including casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

A portion of tres leches (custard flan), a local dessert, is a must for all visitors to the area.

Some mixed nuts and a pint of Bavaria, a popular local beer to share with your traveling companions, is a perfect way to take a break.

If you're steering clear of alcohol, fresco de frutas (fruit shake) is an ideal addition to any dining experience.

If you're going out after dinner, you should order a Ron Centenario, a popular spirit here.

Even a basic greeting in the native tongue will help you feel more at ease with everyone you meet. For instance, Muchas gracias, which means thank you, will be useful from time to time. Add ¿Querría bailar conmigo? (would you like to dance?) to your notebook and increase your conversational capacity.

If you enjoy festivities and you're traveling in South Pacific Coast on the 15th of September, inquire about the nationwide celebration of Independence Day.

When it comes time to say, "Adiós", you are sure to leave with great memories and perhaps some presents to take home.

If you're traveling to Carate by plane, keep in mind that this destination's nearest major airport is Tobias Bolanos International Airport, 110 miles (177 kilometers) to the northwest.
