Located in Costa Rica's Central Valley among rolling hills and sugar cane plantations, Grecia is a quaint town with a mild climate and several worthy attractions.

The mountains of Grecia offer the perfect climate: 68-82 degrees all year round.

Because of its location and agricultural base (coffee and sugar cane) Grecia is always green as you can see in this panorama contribution for the theme "Food."

Every Saturday the town is host to one of the best open-air markets in the country. Fruits and vegetables galore.

Grecia is known as the "Cleanest City in Latin America."

No howler monkeys or sloths here, but the area is home to countless flocks of parrots and literally thousands of species of birds and butterflies.
