Tilarán is a cool country town !!

Who has seen the wind? Neither you or I, But when the trees bow down their heads, The wind is passing by. ~ Who Has Seen the Wind?, Christina Georgina Rossetti, English poet

Tilarán The roundabout-the-lake route described before leads to Tilarán and fromthere, access to the western beaches of Nicoya and Guanacaste or to the famous Monteverde Cloud Forest.

Tilarán is a cool country town at the center of farmlands and horse and cattle ranching. It’s an unpretentious place that can serve as a base for trips to several destinations, with a comfortable climate and lots of activities. Its main claim to fame, however, is the popular Fiesta de Dias Civicas – a rodeo, livestock show and country fair held the last weekend of April each year.

Eat at La Carreta Restaurant behind the cathedral; you can’t miss the signs. It has an unusual gift shop and a good menu. Dine on the shady porch where plastic bags, filled with water, hang from the rafters. Apparently, the sun’s rays refract in prisms that seem to keep away flies.

Tom wrote us just before press time about his new eight-room, La Carreta Bed and Breakfast, which sounds very good. Alternatively, stay cheap at the Hotel Naralit, across from the modernlooking cathedral. From Tilarán you may be able to see the Tenorio Volcano (no facilities) to the north, which looks like any other mountain.

From Tilarán there is a back way to Monteverde (see below) and a good road to the Inter-American Highway, which can take you to Guanacaste or back to San José.
