When I get tired of the grit and haste of San José, the first escape that comes to mind is the Orosí Valley. After only about an hour and a half of driving, I find myself on the winding mountain roads, passing comfy B&Bs and verdant hillsides and remembering why I live in Costa Rica. Here I can hike to waterfalls, visit street markets, and explore the ruins of one of the oldest churches in the country.
