Friends and I decided to have a little adventure, so we went up to Heredia's mountains to enjoy a picnic. When we arrived they told us we needed to pay to go in, which is fine, and then they told us that if we wanted to sit down and eat in a "Rancho", we needed to pay more. Well that... More

A very well-kept and pretty spot to stop for a picnic overlooking beautiful views of the Costa Rica's Central Valley. It is higher in altitude so the trees are more piney and the air definitely feels cooler and fresher than lower areas of the province of Heredia.

Absolutely beautiful scenery. Though only minutes from downtown Heredia, it makes you feel as if you drove hours to get away to a little spot with fresh air, few people, and amazing nature scenes. Great views abound, from the lookouts over the entire central valley, to trees, animals, and rivers. I'd highly recommend this getaway.
