Los Santos Route

Los Santos Route

It is a picturesque trip that takes you along secondary roads that part from the Interamericana and then to the north to return to San José, passing by the villages of San Pablo de León Cortés, San Marcos de Tarrazú, Santa María de Dota and San Cristóbal South and North.  The route allows you to see the beautiful landscapes of Coffee plantations and cattle. The roads are narrow and foggy, and snake through the splendid countryside.
