“A Great Day Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The Orosi Valley, southeast of Cartago and visible from the top of Irazú on a clear day, is generally considered one of the most beautiful valleys in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is small but offers so much to see and do for retirees. I talk about all of this in detail on my monthly retirement tours.

“Beautiful landscapes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We visited several little towns on one day including Orosi, Ujarras, Paraiso and Cartago. The views al over are beautiful. at the bottom of the valley you will find yourself surrounded by mountains. It's magical (Specially for a Floridian) There is something to visit on each town. You may spend an entire day visiting those towns. If you don't mind driving little you can also try visiting the Irazu volcano (about 1.5 hrs away)

“Very Scenic Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Very scenic; good place to stay for a visit to Irazu. Not much to do in the town itself, but a beautiful area.

“Sites and tastings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Went with a small group, picked up at the hotel. Sites included historic, the large volcano and crater were impressive, and the stop at a restaurant near the Orosi valley was restful and delicious.
