Arguably the best coffee of Costa Rica comes from the Valle de los Santos just minutes away, and the names of most of them end in "Dota". Copey is much quieter than nearby Santa Maria de Dota. You go to Cabinas Las Manzanas if you want to rest, walk and see the roadside flora and fauna at high elevation. Olman Serrano and his wife Rosy, are humble, generous hosts. Rosy is willing to cook trout for your dinner if the only restaurant in town is closed. Olman will take you on a walk on his mountainside covered with apple, peach and avocado orchards. There are 12 varieties of avocados! Olman and Rosy don't speak English, but if you speak Spanish, they will enjoy communicating with you about the history of land use in the area and their own beautiful garden. The rooms (only 4) are solidly built and are very clean. The bed is comfortable. There is just one towel per person. There are reading lights, and Rosy will give you extra pillows without complaint. We loved the simplicity of the place. For only $40 a night, per couple, including breakfast, you can hardly go wrong. Copey is a beautiful place; we could imagine living there. May it stay as peaceful as it is. Why is it so charming and peaceful? Maybe because there is no high speed internet yet in Copey.
