The smallest of the provinces of Costa Rica

If you're in hurry


It is the smallest of the provinces of Costa Rica, its area representing only 5% of the national territory. The Barva volcano (2906m above sea level) is one of the province's leading tourist attractions.

Legend has it that there is a lake at the top of the volcano under which a church would have been swallowed up. The town of Barva does not lack charm with its square lined with old colonial houses.

An inhabitant of the province of Heredia is named "Herediano".
