Los Chiles is a border town city in the north of Costa Rica.
It's pretty wealthy because of its geographic border situation. It's the most northern town and one of the two official border crossings between Plains of the North, Costa Rica and Rio San Juan Region in Nicaragua.
Pretty small - walkable!
On the Riverbank of the Rio Frio you can see sometimes Howler Monkeys and different birds. There´s a great path that goes along the bank, heading north from the dock. You´ll see lots of locals fishing, which is a great way to spend a day.
If it´s a weekend, you can probably catch an afternoon mejenga (soccer match) in the Central Plaza.
You can hop on a Tour boat driving around on the Rio Frio watching birds and stuff like that. Most of these tours are actually organised from Fortuna.
There are plenty of Sodas all over town.
