Located on the northwestern flank of Poas Volcano, Ciudad Quesada is the capital of San Carlos Province, and is known to all as San Carlos. Not a tourism destination in its own right, the beautiful mountain city is bustling and prosperous, the center of Costa Rica’s dairy industry.
While in town be sure to visit the La Marina Zoo, an animal rehabilitation facility, and if traveling through in April be sure to time your travel in order to enjoy the regionally famous Feria del Ganado, a town festival celebrating the dairy cattle and ranching heritage.
