The second largest city in the country, Alajuela is known mainly for the beautiful scenery, the abundance of tropical and exotic crops that grow here and the bountiful nature surrounding. Known as the City of Mangoes, the region definitely celebrates its fruit—they even have a yearly festival to honor the mango.
Visitors here, when not soaking up local culture, enjoy the natural hot springs, they check out the volcanoes and hike along the Rio Celeste, the breathtaking color of its ultra blue waters cannot really be experienced through mere pictures.
  • VOLCANOES

    At one time the Arenal Volcano was one of the most active in the world. Tourists also flock to both the Poas Volcano as well as the Tenorio Volcano which boasts four impressive peaks and two craters for people to explore.

  • SARCHI

    A small town in the Alajuela region, Sarchi embodies the true spirit of art and crafts in northern Costa Rica. There are tons of artisanal shops lining the streets. But their main specialty is furniture. Wooden items, from everyday bowls to large tables, show off the craftsmanship of the people within this town.

  • JUAN CASTRO BLANCO NATIONAL PARK

    This Alajuelan gem is heralded as a sanctuary for many of the region’s endangered species. Hiking through the park, visitors, if lucky, can spot up to 100 species of birds, over 40 different kinds of amphibians and thirty plus mammal species.
