Welcome to Tilarán


Most visitors, however, are just passing through, traveling between La Fortuna and Monteverde. Because it’s situated on the slopes of the Cordillera de Tilarán, this little hub is a somewhat cooler alternative (in climate and atmosphere) than the towns along the Interamericana.

Waiting here for the next bus? Enjoy an ice cream under the peach-colored spaceship-like structure in the main plaza while ogling the modernistic church, which rivals the beauty in nearby Cañas.
