San Vito was originally an Italian coffee farming settlement, and still retains its character as an agricultural center of the Southern Zone. With an ideal, cool climate and a bustling small town ambiance, those seeking a break from the heat and more touristy areas will enjoy the fresh mountain air. Nearby Wilson Botanical Gardens draws in loads of visitors and the Amistad National Park offers a trekkers paradise to explore. There are also hot springs in the hills, though finding someone with directions to them can be a challenge!
