Small town about 24 Km. from San Jose and on the way to the Carrara National Park, and the beaches of Jaco, Quepos, and Manuel Antonio.

This was the old road where the coffee filled oxcarts passed on its way to the port of Puntarenas where it was shipped to Europe.

The town is known for the "Toronja Rellena", a glassed grapefruit desert much liked among Costa Ricans.

The town conserves a 19th century atmosphere and it is worth visiting.
