The West Valley consists of five main towns: Atenas, San Ramon, Palmares, Naranjo and Grecia. It's surrounded by the Poas and Barva volcanos in the east and the San Ramon and Turrubares Mountains in the west. Unlike other regions, slopes in the West Valley have moderate inclines, which help to conserve soil depth and quality. The region is populated by immigrants from the Central Valley who, toward the end of the 19th century, brought their coffee crops and resettled, taking advantage of the climate and the richness of the soil. Coffee has since significantly contributed to the region's social and economic development and generated a culture of values and principles built on family unity
