  Central Valley, Costa Rica

Surrounded by several mountains, volcanos and coffee-cultivated hillsides of the Central Valley, you'll find Costa Rica’s heart and soul. This is not only the geographical center of the country, but also its cultural and spiritual core.

Home to a variety of environments and located about an hour’s drive southwest of San Jose International Airport, you can enjoy local festivals where you can sample "typical" foods and watch the "caballos trotadores", Spanish dancing horses or bull riding events. San Pablo offers a variety of activities, such as, touring a local organic coffee farm, or you can choose to explore the beaches, parks and the hot springs.

Experience curvy mountain roads as you travel through forested nature. Quaint and quirky agricultural towns invite leisurely detours to farmers markets. For more adventure, you can experience world-class rapids, resplendent quetzals and close encounters with active volcanoes, which all show off the rich landscape in which Costa Rica's character is rooted.
