This is a beautiful valley to spend some time. Orosi town itself is a cute little town with a nice small church/museum to visit.

Get out of the city and spend a day driving the loop around the Orosi valley. Great little restaurants, especially the one overlooking the football plaza in Orosi. Lots to do here - sightseeing, the Mirador, the green suspension bridge, Tapanti National Park, the balnearios...More

I have visited the Orosi Valley a few times. It is one of my girlfriend's favorite places in Costa Rica. Rightly so! The river valley is beautiful, the mountains are awesome. The small towns and villages are friendly and welcoming.
