“A great day trip experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Living in Costa Rica we have been to many towns in the seven provinces. One of our favorite is the Orosi River Valley in Cartago. The towns, mountains, people, and coffee planttions manke it a wonderful place to visit.
A must see.

The vistas going down into valley are just beautiful. I loved seeing the little villages, especially the village of Orosi with its beautiful old church.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This valley has lots to see and do. There are some good zip line and water activities. You have to visit the church in Orosi too (said to be the oldest in Costa Rica). Make sure to hit the nearby hot water pool after a good day of activities.

to enter the valley, you drop down and down and down, away from the bustle of the central valley and into a place that time forgot. love eating at cafetal. must try the trout and the coffee ice cream. the church is the oldest in CR. the climate is cool, nice to visit dota which is nearby.
