Atenas was named one of the top places in the world for retirees by AARP. The microclimate formed by the mix of the winds from Irazu and Palma with the Atenas cloud forest is considered one of the best places to live by the United Nations. At 845 meters above sea level, the temperature remains a constant 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit year round.
