Sightseeing
La vista es incredible. Me encanta ir a Baja Mar para ver el atardecer. Subo el peñón, busco una roca grande y me siento a ver el atardecer. The sight is amazing. I clim the ridge, find a big rock and I sit down to see the sun setting next to the ocean.

Tourist love to visit Rio Tárcoles. The bridge that crosses the river Tárcoles, has long been a tourist attraction. What is there you ask? Well, crocodiles, and tons of them. There is a walk way through the bridge that allows you to see them. They are constantly in that area, as they are feed by the locals, and attract tourist to this particular location. If you feel the heat, there is a POPS ice cream place in the location. I recommend you try costarrican ice cream at this shop. My fave is vanilla (i know kinda boring, but to each its own).

You can book a tour to go see the crocs up and personal. I don't recommend taking kids on this trip that are younger than 5 y/o.

Pasear por las calles alternas de Orotina. Ya que estas en la zona, ¿por qué no dar la vuelta por las calles de tierra, llenas de potreros y vacas? Esta “vista” de Orotina ha sido inmortalizada por el artista costarricense Isidro Con Wong (https://www.isidroconwong.com/contenido/), quien pinta su romance con el campo de Costa Rica. Get lost exploring the side dirt roads. Because you are here, it is the perfect time to explore the land. Fall in love with the view, as the painter Isidro Con Wong did with the pastures of Orotina. You can check Isidros art on his web page: https://www.isidroconwong.com/contenido/ I love his paintings.

Food scene
I love eating at the HookUp, a small sports bar/restaurant on the second level at the Marina Village in Los Sueños Resort. Good, simple, tasty american style food. If you go for lunch, go by the 1st level coffee shop to drink some good coffee and satisfy your sweet tooth. Me encanta ir a comer al HookUp. Es un bar/restaurante de “deportes”. Se encuentra ubicado en el segundo piso de la Marina de los Sueños. Si vas a comer almuerzo, podes pasar a la cafeteria en el primer piso, por un cafecito y postre.

Biodiversity
Carara National Park is a national park in the Central Pacific Conservation Area located near the Pacific coast of Costa CRica. It was established on April 27, 1978 as a biological reserve, but its growing popularity after 1990 forced the government to upgrade its category to national park in November 1998. Carara lies about 30 miles west of the Costa Rican capital of San José and about 15 miles north of the beach town of Jacó. The park protects the river basin of the River Tárcoles, near Orotina and includes one of the largest remaining populations of wild scarlet macaws in the country.

Neighborhoods/Barrio
You are in rural Costa Rica. You will houses are far in between, people ride bikes or motorcycles to get around, and in some instances walk.
This is more of a set of houses in between farms. It is more than a sleepy town. Only thing to do is enjoy nature and relax in river, or if you are lucky in a pool.
