“Pretty Scenery - long, convoluted drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We spent 4 days in San Jose at the end of our vacation. San Jose doesn't have many attractions so on a rainy Chrismtas day, we took a day trip to the Orosi River Valley and Ujarras Ruins. We had a rental car and drove ourselves. Our GPS took us through city centers, suburban neighborhoods and down country lanes - sometimes I wondered where we were headed. Eventually, it lead us to a lovely spot overlooking the valley. We then took a winding road down into the valley and took a look at a hydro electric dam and the Ujarras ruins. The ruins were located down a little side road that we missed at first. Very scenic, though we were able to see everything of interest within 20 minutes. The drive to and from took a bit over an hour each way making this a trip spent mostly in the car. Still, it was better than sitting in the hotel!

“Beautiful area of Costa Rica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

We went in a small group can and toured the oldest church in Costa Rica. There is a small museum there as well and the chapel is small but beautifully appointed. You feel the history.

“Gorgeous Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Hot springs are more like a warm pool, but they are cheap ($4) and the Orosi Valley is very charming! Worth a trip for sure!
