The little town of Carrizal is in the province of Alajuela, on the road to Poas, 10 minutes away from the city of Alajuela. The district of Carrizal, previously called Conception, has a lovely climate, is very green and flowery. The views of the central valley are stunningly beautiful and inspiring. This is coffee country and the only region left where the cultivation methods used are still traditional.
There is a lot of dairy activity as well, however the area is well known for its nurseries of ornamental plants and flowers. Flower retailers, exporters and individual travel there to buy their supplies, some of these nurseries are huge and cover many hectares!
This is a very pleasant little town, friendly and peaceful, far away from the maddening crowd, but only 15 minutes away from the Juan Santamaria International Airport, and 25 minutes away from the center of San Jose, It is close to the Poas Volcano National Park, from the Barva Volcano, and the fabulous La Paz Waterfall, the most photographed waterfalls of the country. Carrizal provides a healthy and peaceful living, in harmony with nature yet with the necessary amenities and shops from the malls and shops of the city of Alajuela, the best choice for living close to the city!
