“Nice place for a family picnic”
Review of Monte de la Cruz

Nice trails, though not extensive, some with great view of San Jose and the Central Valley. Ranchos for rent but you will need to get here early - these covered areas have tables, benches etc - all you will need to settle in to a nice day of relaxation. Kids area for ball games, playground. Bathrooms have easy access.

You can spend a few hours walking around, or the entire day. Bring food for a picnic or BBQ!

Monte de la Cruz is well up the hill (monte) from San Rafael de Heredia. It is a popular spot for groups and families to go to be outdoors and have a picnic. There are many good restaurants on the road climbing up from San Rafa. It offers nice views of Heredia and beyond with a cool crisp climate.

I like going up there for lunch and an outdoor chat.

Great for one day trips, near the city but far enough to make you disconnect from everything too. You can take a walk through the woods, relax laying down in the grass, play soccer, have a BBQ, or just relax. It's great for going solo, with your friends or family. Picnics are a great option too.

When visiting, just hope there are no clouds so you can get the best view of Heredia. Take a sweater because is it cold. It's great for picnics and family fun!
