Las Pilas is a tranquil and peaceful little village about 10 kms away from Juan Santa Maria airport, in Alajuela. It is nestled amongst coffee plantations with an altitude of 1300 meters, and enjoys a lovely climate all year around. It is close from the city of Alajuela, San Jose and the Poas and Barva volcanoes.
Las Pilas is proud to have an excellent Mediterranean Restaurant and a couple of good hotels like the Buena Vista and the Vina Romantica.
The Province of Alajuela is very large, with Nicaragua on its northern border, San Jose in the south, Heredia to the east and Guanacaste and Puntarenas to the West. Its main export are coffee, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, citrus fruit, strawberries and beans, as well as flowers and ornamental plants. It also has bee keeping for honey, dairy products, poultry and pig farming. This fascinating province is known for its excellent climate that is said to be the best of the World.
Las Pilas, while being close to two big cities, is excellent for those who seek a quiet country life and beautiful landscape, away from it all yet close to all necessary amenities. An excellent choice for living the real Costa Rica!
