Nothern Plains

Nothern Plains Costa Rica

With its several protected areas, lakes, lagoons, volcanoes, rivers and waterfalls, the Northern Plains Costa Rica  Zone is undergoing a boom in tourism service and adventure site development, so that nature-loving visitors can enjoy the region’s many riches. Thanks to frequent rains, the Northern Plains Costa Rica Zone features wet and evergreen forests as well as fertile plains—natural environments that serve as sanctuaries for water birds, reptiles, mammals and the prehistoric Gaspar fish, and important sites of interest for wildlife-lovers. Adventure activities and nature-watching may be enjoyed on the region’s rivers—Peñas Blancas, San Carlos, Toro, Puerto Viejo and Sarapiquí—some of which are important navigational routes.

Forming part of the region is the Sarapiquí canton, which, with its rich biodiversity, is recognized as a scientific research site and the last stronghold of endangered species such as the great green macaw. The Northern Plains region of Costa Rica is famous for the turnos (outdoor parties or festivals) held in its towns, with bull riding and livestock auctions.
