Their fruit is harvested and processed into palm oil, a versatile product in cooking oils, biofuel, chocolate, cosmetics, chemical and farming industries – you name it!
Within three years of planting, the palms are ready for harvesting and a single hectare of palms can produce up to 30 metric tons of fruit bunches annually. Seed pods are cut from the tree, then steamed at processing plants to separate the seeds, which are then passed through a grinder to release oil.
The first palms were planted in Costa Rica in 1897 in order to diversify the holdings of the American-owned United Fruit Company, and later they replaced bananas as Costa Rica’s biggest cash crop following the banana blight in the 1940s. Costa Rica was once the leading producer of palm oil in the Americas, but Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and Brazil have all surpassed it.

Pavones – Lonely Planet
Known as a surfer’s haven, Pavones is a small community located along the southern Pacific Coast. Surrounded by jungle and home to multiple world class surf breaks. Pavones is also surrounded by diverse wildlife in the lush rainforest nearby. Wildlife is flying, swinging, climbing and crawling everywhere you look. The rich jungle meets the coast with incredible lush tropical landscape. Wildlife abounds with a variety of monkeys including howlers and white faced, toucans, macaws, sloths and so much more.
Pavones isn’t just another Costa Rica surfer town – this region is home to some of the best, longest wave in the world. This remote village can be a challenge to get to, but as the second longest left behind Chicama, Peru, the travels may be worth it. When a south southwest swell comes in, the surf here is fast, intense and the ride can last up to 2 minutes. No joke, Red Bull filmed Robby Naish surfing a wave for 2 minutes 15 seconds and going over 1 km!
