Here are big rivers, fantastic scenery, forests, small towns, and small lodges that offer genuine Costa Rican hospitality. Travelers can head for Tapanti National Park, see the dam for the large hydroelectric project, or, if driving make a loop from Ujarras around the lake.

From Paraiso, roads go east and south for magnificent views of both Orosi and Ujarras Valleys and the lake formed by Cache Dam. The east road leads to ruins of the 17th-century church of Ujarras. The colonial town that once surrounded it lies over pre-Columbian roads. Stop at the view point (mirador in Spanish) overlooking Ujarras. South of Paraiso is the town of Orosi and its 18th-century church, the oldest house of worship still in use in the country. Beside it is a small museum of religious art, open daily, housed in what was a Franciscan monastery.
