San Carlos

This popular holiday destination is located in the north of the country, near the border with Nicaragua. It’s a humid region with lots of national parks, reserves and hot thermal springs. It is also home to Arenal, one of Costa Rica’s iconic volcanoes.

Climate

Local conditions as rich and deep soils, no high variations in day and night temperature and around the year, good combination of sun hours and rain precipitation makes the northern region of Costa Rica a perfect place to grow organic pineapples. Weather
