Costa Rica: North Central

Arenal and Other Volcano Regions

The strikingly beautiful Central Valley and Highlands offer a variety of climates, but many consider this area of Costa Rica to be in “Eternal Spring.” The incredible landscapes include rich, green coffee fields, soaring volcanoes, winding rivers, sugar plantations, picturesque farm land and charming small towns such as Grecia, Sarchi, Zarcero, Atenas and Escazu.

View the Orosi Valley, Irazu or Poas Volcanoes; hike Braulio Carrillo National Park or Los Angeles Cloud Forest Reserve; tour La Paz Waterfall Gardens; or enjoy a day of whitewater rafting.

Transfers from the San Jose International Airport to this area are short. Numerous activities are available.
