The Central Valley


The Central Valley is Costa Rica’s fertile heartland in the geographical centre of the country. Strawberries and blackberries are sold by the side of the road and dairy farms making artisan cheese are spread out over the rolling green hills. Pretty agricultural villages host farmer’s markets and it is here visitors can acquaint themselves with Costa Rica’s hearty country cooking. Most famous for its coffee plantations, the Central Valley also offers white water rafting, waterfalls, active volcanos and some of the country’s most vibrant birdlife.

If you are a coffee connoisseur then a tour of a coffee plantation is a must do whilst the pretty towns of Grecia and Sarchí offer a glimpse into local Costa Rican life.
