Cities of Costa Rica - San Carlos
One of the larger towns for Costa Rican's outside of the Central Valley is San Carlos. It was built around the cattle industry and is around 40 minutes from the town of La Fortuna. In San Carlos you can find it all from hospitals, churches, car dealerships, and much more. It is a city that has some wealth as the cattle industry did well for itself.
The area is warm and flat and everything outside of San Carlos is pretty rural going north into the northern plains and Nicaragua. This is not much of a touristy destination and mainly used as a pass-through from the town of Zarcero in route to La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano.
