Alajuela is located in the north-central part of the country, bordering Nicaragua to the north, borders the provinces of Heredia to the east, San José to the south, Puntarenas to the southwest and Guanacaste to the west. The capital is Alajuela and that is where the main international airport (Juan Santamaría International Airport) is located.
Other large cities include Ciudad Quesada, Naranjo, Zarcero, Orotina, Sarchí, Upala, San Ramón, Grecia and Los Chiles. There are several national parks including Poás Volcano National Park, Arenal Volcano National Park, Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park, Juan Castro Blanco National Park, Los Ángeles Cloud Forest, and Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge
In 1996 the roads through Provincia de Alajuela to Sarchí and Zarcero were not too bad.
After we left Zarcero, we turned north toward Arenal. As we were driving through this area, we had to stop for a road surfacing project. My husband said this was probably the only macadam machine in Costa Rica. We were held up her about an hour.
