The Central Valley (Spanish: Valle Central) is a plateau and a geographic region located in central Costa Rica. The land in the valley is relatively plain, despite of being surrounded by several mountains of volcanos, the latter part of the Central Range, and the region houses almost three quartes of Costa Ricans, including the capital and most populous city, San José. The valley is shared between the provinces of Alajuela, Heredia, San José and Cartago, and the region properly occupies an area of 11.366 km² (more than a fifth of the whole country).
