If you just arrived to HEREDIA or SÁMARA and are looking for things to do on the weekend...here are some ideas.

HEREDIA: We are open Saturdays till 4pm, stop by to meet our staff and English students, or go take a dip in the public pool 2 blocks from school, or take a taxi to the Museo de Cultura Popular in Santa Lucia (only open on Sundays), where you can see an old colonial style farmhouse, eat traditional recipes, visit the museum and its artefacts, and spend a relaxing afternoon. Afterwards, walk up to the village of Barva and check out the artwork in the central plaza and the colonial church, one of Costa Rica’s oldest, before heading home for dinner by bus or taxi.

SÁMARA: If you are arriving over the weekend, feel free to stop by school to meet other students and check the activity boards for weekend options in Sámara. Around town, you will also find many tourist information offices open over the weekend.
