Grecia is a medium sized town in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. About 27 miles (43km) northwest of the capital of San Jose, Grecia is set amidst mountains and rolling green valleys, offering great panoramas.

This agricultural center grows and produces sugar cane, organic coffee and pineapple. With its mild climate, fresh breeze year round and its friendly locals, this is a charming little town to visit and see some Costa Rican culture.

Grecia is a well-maintained and clean city, breathing a comfortable atmosphere. The central park, bordered by the Cathedral made of a red colored metal, is a nice place to relax for a bit between lush tropical plants and in the shade of large trees and people watch.
Attractions include the Snakes Museum, a Butterfly and Insect Museum and Las Cataratas de los Chorros, the latter one being a pair of waterfalls within a private reserve, several minutes from town.

Nearby you will find the famous artisan town of Sarchi, where you can indulge looking for hand-made souvenirs or dare-devils could try bungee jumping of the 75-meters (245 feet) high bridge over the Rio Colorado.
