Grecia, Costa Rica: Expat Living in this Charming and Picturesque Central Valley Gem

Grecia, Costa Rica, is a charming and picturesque town located in the Central Valley, surrounded by rolling hills, waterfalls and beautiful sugar cane plantations. The town’s mild climate and well-maintained central park make it a perfect destination for nature lovers and those seeking a peaceful getaway. Across from the park is town’s most famous attraction the Iglesia de la Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes, a unique church made entirely of pre-fabricated steel plates painted red that and shipped in from Belgium in the late 19th century.

Conveniently located near Alajuela and San José, Grecia is a more laidback lifestyle compared to the big city. It’s also situated near other smaller towns like Atenas and La Garita.

Grecia is surrounded by natural beauty including nearby Poas Volcano and many coffee farms. It’s no wonder that Grecia is a popular destination for expats seeking a more relaxed lifestyle in a small town setting.
