Islita

Find out where the locals hang out and hear their tips for your getaway in Islita in North Pacific Coast.

Accommodation in Islita

Travelocity's Islita hotels guide currently offers a small range of accommodation options, so it's certainly best to secure your booking ahead of time.

Islita Vacation Packages

San Jose, 90 miles (145 kilometers) east, and Cartago, situated 100 miles (161 kilometers) east, are two wonderful cities that are within a few hours' drive of Islita.

After you have explored Islita, venture further into North Pacific Coast and breathe in the sea air at the coastlines and beaches. Pack your sunglasses and hat, and head 55 miles (89 kilometers) east of Islita to find Jaco Beach, or 55 miles (89 kilometers) east to find Herradura Beach.

Go back to your roots and discover the natural treasures that this area has to offer. Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve is 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Islita, and Barra Honda National Park 20 miles (32 kilometers) away.

A tour of The ARA Project and Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Camaronal will help you better understand the area.

A great idea is to plan a day trip and check out some popular nearby attractions. Corozalito, roughly 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the east, is home to San Miguel Beach and Jungle Butterfly Farm. If that doesn't quite quench your thirst for adventure, why not extend your journey to Carrillo? It's only 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the west and features Carrillo Beach and Samara Beach.

If you're visiting Islita, you should consider going to Garza, 17 miles (27 kilometers) away. Here, you'll discover numerous attractions, such as Buena Vista Beach, Garza Beach and Safari Surf School. Nosara Beach and Frog Pad are also worth checking out.

Vacationing with the family takes it out of you. After surviving a day of sightseeing, recharge at one of the regional restaurants.

You're likely to enjoy food with pork or chicken while in this region.

Trying a bite of the area's native cuisine can tell volumes about its character. Popular regional dishes include casado and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken).

A delicious dessert that's local to the area is tres leches (custard flan). You must have a taste while here.

Feel like a local by ordering a Bavaria, a go-to beer in the area.

Revel in the flavor of fresco de frutas (fruit shake), a signature non-alcoholic beverage here.

Having some Ron Centenario will surely be a wonderful initiation into this place.

Making an effort to learn a little Spanish will enhance your experience with the locals. A good example of a handy Spanish expression is ¿Cómo estás? (how are you?). Another helpful expression is Bien gracias, ¿y tú? (fine thanks, and you?).

This nation celebrates Independence Day on the 15th of September. So, if you're visiting near that date, look into the festivities.

Get ready to leave, say, "Hasta la vista" and buy a last-minute souvenir to show your friends back home.

Travelers flying to Islita need to be aware that the nearest major airport is Daniel Oduber International Airport, which is 50 miles (80 kilometers) away.
