We went in a small group can and toured the oldest church in Costa Rica. There is a small museum there as well and the chapel is small but beautifully appointed. You feel the history.

Hot springs are more like a warm pool, but they are cheap ($4) and the Orosi Valley is very charming! Worth a trip for sure!

Costa Rica has many nice places to visit, but this one specially will give you the taste of what Costa Rica was many years ago maintaining its beauty. It is a place to enjoy a weekend or some soft adventure tours. Very nice place

What does pricing look like if I want to do the hike without a tour guide? Is there an entrance fee?

-The valley itself doesn´t have a fee entrance and you can go without a tourguide. Just if you go to Tapantí National park you would have to pay for entrance but its not expensive. It´s a park in the valley. Regards,

Would you share the name of the restaurant or hotel where you took the pictures looking down to the Valley. I am looking for a place to eat during our one day trip and the scenes in your albums are gorgeous. Thanks
