San Vito is perhaps best known as the home of the Las Cruces Biological Station and the Wilson Botanical Garden. The Wilson garden is home to some of the most exotic plant species in Latin America, including rare specimens in the aroid, bromeliad, cycad and maranta families. The gardens feature extensive trails and paths that overlook the stunning scenery of La Amistad International Park, of which the Wilson Botanical Garden is a part.
The Wilson gardens are considered to be among the finest in Costa Rica. The facility is divided into themed areas, and unlike some other botanical gardens, every specimen and genus is clearly marked, providing visitors with a fascinating and educational experience. The Wilson Botanical Gardens are also one of the best places to go bird watching in Costa Rica, and the facility attracts thousands of amateur ornithologists every year.
No trip to San Vito is complete without exploring the lush rainforests of La Amistad International Park. Set amid more than 472,000 hectares of protected land, this national park is home to thousands of species of plant and animal, and features breathtaking views of the region’s rolling hillside. On a clear day, visitors can see across the border far into Panama, making a trip to La Amistad International Park an unforgettable experience.
