This small village, on the historic camino de carretas (oxcart trail) that once carried coffee beans as far as Puntarenas, is best known for having the most pleasant climate in the world – according to none other than National Geographic. It’s not too heavy on sights, but springtime is always in the air and the central square is a lovely spot to take in Costa Rican life.
