Mountain forests, rivers, waterfalls, and wildlife is what this park offers. The Tapanti National Park is not very visited by tourists despite being only about 1/2 hour from San Jose and the Central Valley. 

This is an undiscovered jewel! With its natural mountain forests, the river, waterfall, and the wildlife that lives here.

The park's extension is 6080 hectares and its altitude varies from 1220 meters to 2560 meters. The Rio Grande de Orosi crosses the park. There are several scenic trails (from 1 to 4 kilometers long) that visitors can take and enjoy the forests and river.
