Breathing some fresh air, and surrounding yourself with new and different surroundings is the best way to give your mind, body and soul a fresh renewed start. And what better place to do this than up in the Cartago mountains at the Orosi Viewpoint! Also known as Mirador de Orosi, this beautiful viewpoint gives you some of the most jaw-dropping, scenic views you could ever find in Costa Rica.
Start your day bright and early to make the most out of your trip! Make sure to wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes and bring a sweater in case it gets chilly. And don’t worry about having breakfast! If you get an early start you can always stop by a nice cozy restaurant on the drive up and order some fresh ground coffee and homemade traditional Costa Rican breakfast – Yummy!
The road to the Orosi Viewpoint is usually pretty decent but might get quite bumpy. You might want to take a 4x4 vehicle especially if you are planning to visit during the rainy season. The Mirador de Orosi is located near the town of “Paraiso de Cartago” which is roughly a 1-2 hour drive from San Jose depending on the traffic.
Once you arrive to the viewpoint you will have so much to do! Picnic and barbecue areas are available for you to use. Imagine having one of your delicious barbecues for lunch while enjoying a beautiful view of the entire valley? The viewpoint also has a playing area for kids, lots of green areas to play in and potable water.
