Juan Castro Blanco National Park
Location: Located in Alajuela province, East of Ciudad
Quesada. Importance: 50% of the area is covered with
mixed primary forests, with some patches of regenerative forest.
The vegetation is extraordinarily varied. It is important
because of the role it plays in the conservation of the forest, in soil maintenance and the conservation of the springs that
later become the rivers that irrigate the San Carlos plains.
