About Atenas

If you are looking for a place in Costa Rica that is resplendent with undisturbed beauty, Atenas checks all the boxes. It is recognized by travelers the world over as being biodiverse as well as having options for luxury living. As with everything in Costa Rica, developers work with the environment instead of harming it when adding new living options.

The temperate climate is a near-perfect setting for any activity you enjoy. And because this climate is perfect for growing coffee and sugar cane, the surrounding fields are filled by local organic farms. The scene is both relaxing and calming as you drink your locally-grown coffee, some of the best in the world. The fresh air around Atenas is filled with seductive fragrances from coffee plants and sweet cane stalks.

The volcanic soil together with the mild climate provides ideal growing conditions for local farmers as well as relief from bothersome insects. The city's altitude keeps humidity at bay and offers breathtaking panoramic views over the landscape, making outdoor activities quite popular here.

Atenas was one of the cities located along the old oxcart trail where coffee beans were taken to ports along the coasts. Oxcarts can still be seen in the region which adds to the local color of this charming town.

Only an hour away from the international airport in San Jose, Atenas offers a place to get away from it all but is still close enough to transport options for world travelers. Once you’ve found your villa or condominium in Atenas, making your way to the airport or coastal beaches is accessible by car or public transport.

Exploring the city center is another popular pastime and always a delight for tourists and ex-pats alike. Shops, cafes, and restaurants offering local cuisine line the streets. Grab lunch from a vendor and sit on a park bench beneath ancient trees as birds serenade you. Locals gather here as well so making new friends is as easy as saying hello to passersby.

Venturing around town you’ll find amazing examples of flora and fauna. The Botanical Orchid Garden is a wonder to behold. Native species of orchids are nurtured here before being planted into area habitats. Zoo Avenue is the place to go for animal lovers. Wildlife rescues rehabilitate and breed over 130 native species for preservation right here on the avenue.

Day trips from Atenas offer even more discovery and chances to explore the Costa Rican forests. Take a trip to Las Minas Waterfalls, a secluded wonder near an abandoned gold mine. Hiking in nearby hills offers the reward of shimmering pools beckoning you to dive in. other activities include hiking along the ridges into the treeline, fishing in nearby lakes, or picnicking on the side of a volcano.
