Our Location

In the midst of a peaceful, green mountainous landscape lies the small village of Orosi, whose excellent coffee is by far not the only reason why a stay in this beautiful valley should not be missed on any trip to Costa Rica.

This charming area invites you to explore amazing places.

Orosi is located in a valley, south of the Cachí dam. Here you can find the oldest church of Costa Rica which was built in 1743 by the Spanish conquerors. There is a small museum for sacred art attached to it.

The coffee that is grown here on the mountain slopes is world famous.

There are hot thermo-mineral springs in the area which are great for relaxing. The Tapantí National Park, the Irazú and Turrialba volcanoes, the Lankester Botanical Gardens, the church ruins of Ujarrás and the archaeological site of Guayabo are also within easy reach.

With rainforest, volcanoes, coffee and sugar cane plantations, the Orosi region offers one of the most beautiful and varied landscapes found in Costa Rica.

Although this stretch of land was the first to be settled in Costa Rica, it was one of the last to be developed by tourism, which makes it even more interesting as a tourist destination.


Cartago Basilica

BAs Cartago’s most important site, and Costa Rica’s most venerated religious shrine, this basilica displays Byzantine grace, with fine stained-glass windows, hand-painted interiors and ornate side chapels featuring carved-wood altars. Dating from 1912, the structure retains an unharmed central relic: La Negrita (the Black Virgin), a small representation of the Virgin Mary, that was found on this spot on August 2, 1635.

If you happen to be in Costa Rica the last week of July to the 2nd of August, you can observe the impressive annual pilgrimage to the Basilica …


Lake Cachi

LLake Cachi (Spanish: Lago de Cachí) is an artificial lake in central Costa Rica created by the Cachí Dam (Represa de Cachí), an arch dam which is located north of Tapantí National Park, to the east-southeast of Cartago in Cartago Province. The main town is Cachí, located on the east bank of the lake. Built in the 1970s, it was one of the first hydroelectric projects in Costa Rica. It has an installed capacity of 102 MW with three units of 34 MW capacity each

For several years now, Costa Rica has run on entirely renewable energy for an average of about 300 days per year. That means the government did not burn any oil, coal, or natural gas to power the country. No other country this size has done this.


Tapanti National Park


Tapantí – Cerro de la Muerte Massif National Park, (Spanish: Parque Nacional Tapantí – Macizo Cerro de la Muerte), is a National Park in the Central Conservation Area of Costa Rica located on the edge of the Talamanca Range, near Cartago. It protects forests to the north of Chirripó National Park, and also contains part of the Orosí River. The area known as Cerro de la Muerte Massif was added to the park on January 14, 2000.

The southwest border of the protected area corresponds partially to Route 2, Carretera Interamericana Sur (South Inter-american Highway), the Los Quetzales National Park and Los Santos Forest Reserve are located on the other side of this road.

The park covers 583.20 square kilometres (225.17 sq mi) and two life zones: lower montane rain forest and pre-montane rain forest. These forests provide habitat for some 45 mammal species, including the Baird’s tapir, kinkajou, white-faced capuchin monkey, paca, agouti, ocelot, and jaguarundi. The park’s 400 bird species include sparrow hawks, resplendent quetzals, emerald toucanets, and violaceous trogons. There are 28 species of reptiles and amphibians, and a large insect population that includes the thysania agrippina, the largest moth on the American continent.


Coffee Tour


To truly understand Costa Rica’s connection to the popular brew, a coffee tour is an excellent place to start. A traditional tour will begin with the history of coffee worldwide before guiding visitors through a farm to follow the process from seed to bean to cup.

A Coffeetour is a must-see experience in Costa Rica.

The best coffee-growing regions feature high altitude and volcanic soils that create an ideal climate for the plants. In Costa Rica, those conditions aren’t hard to find.

Orosi, a historic village in the Central Valley, has been producing coffee for more than 150 years. There are cafetales (coffee farms) in mountainous towns and regions such as Tarrazú, Tres Ríos, Valle Occidental, Valle Central Brunca , Turrialba and the Orosi Valley. Each region will claim that their coffee is the best in Costa Rica, but it really all comes down to personal preference.

By law, virtually all coffee grown in Costa Rica is arabica, meaning it comes from the Coffea arabica plant first found in the Middle East.

Regardless of where in the country the plants are grown, when coffee berries are ripe, they’re harvested by hand.

The milled beans are bagged and exported. If the coffee is staying in Costa Rica, they’ll be toasted and packaged for sale. And if the beans have been processed as part of your tour, the guide might roast, grind and brew the freshest cup of coffee you’ve ever had.
