Pejibaye, Costa Rica
Named after the peach palm fruit, the town of Pejibaye is located in Jimenez, Cartago. It includes various neighborhoods, such as El Humo, Plaza Vieja, San Joaquín, Los Tigres, Oriente, El Oso, La Veinte, and Veinte Seis. Pejibaye is found in a valley between the Tapanti National Park, also known as Orosi Valley, and the La Marta Wildlife Refuge.
Pejibaye is one of Costa Rica’s eco-minded communities. Another main attraction is the perfect weather. Since it sits at an altitude of 2,170 feet, it rarely gets hotter than 75 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, some of the homes have fireplaces for the cool nights. The overall vibe of this town is one of a retreat or a getaway. It’s near enough to the city to be close to amenities, without suffering from any pollution or noise. It’s a relaxing place to work, raise a family, or retire.
