  • If You like nature, it's the perfect place! In Tapantí National Park You can exercise and have a great fun (walking, running, cycling, etc.). It is Also ideal for resting and fresh air. It is very close to the Central Valley, it is located in Orosi, in the province of Cartago. You can go by car, the street is good. It Is possible to go on a family walk, I think from the children to the older adults could enjoy it.

  • Beautiful park with good hiking trails, especially the way up we liked very much. Go As early as possible so that the sun can be enjoyed long before the clouds rise.

  • Nice trails, lovely river and easy access by car. Saw lots of wildlife. Had a picnic by the river and a tapir walked right past us. Amazing experience. Not a lot else in the area. Facilities are very poor, no shop and the "visitor center" is quite precarious.
  • Splendid beauty. Clean drinkable river with pretty rocks to relax on top of. Not a park for serious hiking, all the trails are short and easy. Come here to relax and get away from the city, and of course, yield to the wonders of nature.
