Located in the northern part of the country, the Sarapiquí Canton is the number 10 of Heredia. Its borders are the Volcanic Mountainous Forest Reserve, a part of it is within the canton, The Wildlife National Reserve Barva del Colorado, The Braulio Carrillo National Park and the Biological Reserve La Selva.

Although traditionally its principal activities were agricultural such as coffee, corn, cacao, cardamom, citric fruits, banana, palmetto, fruit trees, and cattle, nowadays the harvest of pineapple is one of its most prolific activities and an emergent tourism industry helped by our exuberant nature, rain forest, and the kindness of our people.
