Costa Rica Central Valley Region
With breathtaking mountains and a mild and dry climate all year round, it is no wonder that Costa Rica's Central Valley is where over two-thirds or 70% of the population resides. Located just south of San Jose Metro Area, the Central Valley or Meseta Central covers a large portion of the interior of Costa Rica. Lush and green with many plantations, farming is one of the main occupations here, as the soil in the area is very fertile and rich in minerals from the presence of the two active volcanoes namely; volcan Irazu and Volcan Poas.

More than just a visually stunning area, Costa Rica's Central Valley has a lot to offer in terms of arts and culture as well. In this region you can find the oldest church still in use in the country, the Iglesia de San Jose Orosi which was built in 1734 in Orosi. Another famous town of this region is Cartago,which is considered to be among the oldest towns in the country founded in 1563. One of the finest cities in Central America till its destruction in 1732 by the eruption of the Irazu Volcano, Cartago is also an important pilgrimage site as it is home to the La Negrita, or 'The Black Virgin'.

Easily accessible from San Jose City, many tourists visit the Central Valley on day trips to see two to the most popular attractions here, the Poas Volcano and the Irazu Volcano. Both situated inside national parks of the same name, these towering volcanoes have played an important part in this region's history.

The Central Valley is a great place to call home, and is a popular choice of residence for businesspeople who maintain offices in the greater San Jose area.
