San JosÚ

The Cedral Peaks form part of an intrusive massif, 2,428 meters above sea level, which is often veiled in cloud and is covered with a forest laden with epiphytes. Some of the species that grow on this western spur of the Talamanca Mountain Range are the buckthorn, miconia, didymopanax, sweetwood, and growing stick. The region belongs to the Cerros Escaz˙ protective Zone, a wilderness area established to protect important waterfalls and rivers that supply drinking water to the towns of Escaz˙, San Ignacio de Acosta, AsserÝ, Santa Ana and others.

The summits of Blanco Peak (2,271 meters), Rabo de Mico (2,428 metres) and Tacuotari (2,200 metres) can be reached on foot from San Antonio de Escaz˙ and from Matinilla, a village located 5 kms south of the city of Santa Ana. The best time to visit this sites and look-outs is during the dry season, from December to the end of May.
