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.
