Welcome to Alajuela & the Northern Valley

Volcanoes shrouded in mist, undulating coffee fincas (plantations), bustling agricultural centers: the area around the provincial capital of Alajuela, 18km northwest of San José, seems to have it all – including Juan Santamaría International Airport, just 3km outside the city. The proximity to the airport makes this area a highly convenient transit point if you are entering or leaving the country here
