Heredia Province Costa Rica

While Heredia Province is perhaps best known as a northern suburban area of the capital city of San Jose, the great majority of Heredia Province lies in the northern lowlands and rainforests of the Sarapiqui region, bordering Nicaragua and the San Juan River Basin.

Some of the most famous travel destinations in Heredia Costa Rica are the Barva Volcano and Braulio Carrillo National Park. The Sarapiqui River is born on the slopes of the Barva and Poas Volcanoes, and quickly becomes much larger, offering some of Costa Rica's finest locations for whitewater rafting and kayaking.

Downstream (north) of the town of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, the river is calm, wide and navigable. Tourist activities include wildlife excursions and birdwatching in this dense rainforest setting.

The Organization for Tropical Studies operates the La Selva Biological Station on the northern end of Braulio Carrillo National Park, offering day visits and overnight camping with naturalist tour guides.

Costa Rica's National University has its campus near Heredia City, and the InBio Park National Biodiversity Institute is located in Santo Domingo de Heredia.

In the highlands areas of Heredia Province, tourism includes coffee plantation tours and Spanish language schools combined with adventure and nature tours. Many of these include bed and breakfasts, small hotels, and homestay with Costa Rican families.
