  • Explore the geothermal paradise that is Costa Rica's Plains of the North

    2010-02-10

    Each year, millions of travelers from around the world flock to the Central American nation of Costa Rica. While most tourists tend to stay near the scenic beaches and lush jungles that tend to litter the southern portion of the country, a growing number of vacationers have found much to see and do in the Plains of the North.

    The Plains of the North borders the Rio San Juan Region of Nicaragua, and is well known as the home of the world's third most active volcano, Arenal.

    Travelers visiting the geologic wonder might first stop at the city of Fortuna. From this small mountain village, tourists can charter a volcano tour, take part in zip line adventures and dine at some local Costa Rican restaurants.

    After that, excursionists might enjoy a quick jaunt over to Lake Arenal, the largest fresh water body in the country. Visitors can take in the majestic scenery by taking a relaxing walk around the lake or participate in a number of some traditional water sports like windsurfing, fishing and kayaking.

    The region also plays home to the Los Angeles Cloud Forest, where outdoor adventures like hiking and horseback riding can take willing travelers on a scenic trip through one of the most idyllic parks in the region.
