ALAJUELA & THE CENTRAL VALLEY

Nature’s Beauty Abounds

The province is home to many of the country’s most notable natural attractions. Its terrain varies from rainforests, volcanoes, and plains so it has plenty to offer to the avid nature lover.  

Two of the most formidable volcanoes in Costa Rica, Poas, and Arenal, are located in the region and are thriving areas for adventure tourist trips such as hiking, canyoning, and ziplining. Arenal is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is well-known for its iconic conical shape and bright lava flows that make for quite the spectacle when viewed at night.

Alajuela’s Rainforests

One of the main reasons visitors are drawn to Costa Rica is its natural beauty and Alajuela does not disappoint. For those visitors looking for a genuine wildlife experience, there are several national parks and refuges in Alajuela. 

For instance, Juan Castro Blanco National Park is an area that protects its containing habitat which is nothing less than a provincial treasure and a source of national pride. The park is comprised of over 35,000 acres with a top elevation of 7,438 feet. There are several habitats that are so important to its thriving ecosystem such as a cloud forest, a tropical rainforest-lowland, and a tropical rainforest-upland.
