With rainforests, volcanoes and hills, the Orosi Valley offers some of the richest scenery in Costa Rica. The volcanic soil in the area has made Orosi a center for agriculture; the town is considered to be the highest quality coffee producer in the country. Bordering the town is the Tapanti Rainforest Reserve, a stronghold for endangered species such as the Baird's tapir and the jaguar. The reserve offers visitors a network of gentle hiking trails to try out. The Reventazón River winds through the steep-sided valley and collects in Cachi Lake, where visitors can enjoy a boat trip or try their hand at trout fishing. The town also enjoys proximity to Irazú Volcano, the highest active volcano in Costa Rica.

The staff (Alejandra and the owners) were very helpful with local directions and good meals.
Our favorite place. The staff was awesome and extremely helpful. Breakfast was amazing!
Lovely spot, great views, friendly and efficient German hosts, great coffee. Need to have a rental car to enjoy the area but very worth the visit in this "off the beaten track" but beautiful area.
