About Grecia

If you’re looking for a natural retreat far enough away from bustling tourist towns, Grecia won’t disappoint. With a jewel-toned, green landscape as its backdrop, this pristine town is as quaint as it is sparkling. A shimmering steel church sits in the town center beckoning all to explore this charming mix of modern and ancient attractions.

Cathedral de la Merced looks like a brick church until you look closely and see the welding seams in between the “stones.” This impressive church was built in the late 19th century from Belgian metal and delights with its unique gothic feel.

Around the church is a beautiful park lined with trees and chirping native birds. Along the streets, you’ll find vendors of locally-produced foods and musicians. Just outside the city is a panoramic view of Poas Volcano. As the city is situated on the volcano’s slope, the altitude provides a pleasant climate for enjoying outdoor activities year-round. Not only does the city’s unique location offer magnificent views, but it also offers opportunities for exploration and discovery like no other.

With the international airport in San Jose nearby, residents can enjoy the best of both worlds: seclusion from daily stress and easy access to travel as often as they desire. Ex-pats often cite the need to get away from it all as one of their top priorities, but still want convenience for international travel and exploration. Grecia fills the bill on all counts.

Grecia is quite popular with ex-pats from all over the world and has been for many years. This means you can meet people from many countries while relaxing on a park bench, and it also means imported foods and products from a variety of cultures are available locally. Grecia restaurants boast cuisines from every culture as well as holiday festivals where you can immerse yourself in discovery.

Farming communities surround Grecia and produce some of the world’s best citrus, sugar cane, and coffees. Popular day-trips include visiting local farms and learning about rural agriculture in Costa Rica and even participating in harvesting and product preparation. Local farmers are proud to tell about the rich history of the area where their ancestors learned to grow food on the slopes of a mighty volcano.

Other popular activities include hiking to hidden waterfalls and swimming in the refreshing pools surrounding them. Others prefer bird watching, painting pictures of the lush landscape, or photographing wildlife.

If museums are your preferred diversion, be sure to visit Grecia Regional Museum filled with ancient wonders and artifacts. Reptile fans can check out World of Snakes and see more than fifty species from all over the world. More squeamish visitors may prefer to watch the gentle antics of butterflies at the Butterfly Farm just south of town.
