Voyage to the gateway to an abundance of riches

Caldera, Costa Rica has been a working port since 1577, and now over four centuries later, it’s the gateway to an abundance of riches. It serves as the primary access point from the Pacific Coast to Costa Rica’s historic capital, San Jose, while some of the country’s best national parks are located just a short distance away.

Just 20 miles south of Caldera are two forest reserves—the Biological Reserve of Carara, and a preserve that encompasses the islands of Guayabo, Negritos and Los Pajaros—and both are known for their large and diverse populations of forest and aquatic birds.

Caldera’s rainforest, which begins just inside the coastline and continues up into the mountain ranges, features rivers, waterfalls, rivers, and parks.
