Orotina is the 9th canton of the province of Alajuela. Due to its geographical position, the canton is located in the Central Pacific Region. It limits to the east with Atenas, to the north with San Mateo, to the south with Garabito and Turrubares, and to the west with Esparza. Orotina has great productive wealth in its soils. The large and varied production of fruit trees is notable (pineapple, melon, watermelon, avocado, cashew, guanábano, mango, jocote, mamón, papaya, zapote, orange, banana, lemon, pejibaye, caimito, tamarind, mandarin, nance, etc.) , which has made the canton famous, organizing an International Fruit Fair every year. Coffee, sugar cane, basic grains are also produced, and large portions of land are dedicated to livestock, mainly fattening. In the city of Orotina, there is the Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, built in 1905. The city also stands out for its park, where there are several monuments such as those dedicated to the Cuban patriot José Martí and the indigenous king Garabito. One of the maximum cultural expressions is the Orotina Communal Band, which has achieved several recognitions at national and international level.
