Welcome to The Road to La Amistad
From San Isidro de El General, the Interamericana winds its way southeast through glorious rolling hills and coffee and pineapple plantations backed by striking mountain facades, towering as much as 3350m above. Along this stretch, a series of narrow, steep, dirt roads leads to some of the country’s most remote areas – some nearly inaccessible due to the prohibitive presence of the Cordillera de Talamanca. But it’s worth enduring the thrilling road for the chance to visit Parque Internacional La Amistad, a true wilderness of epic scale. This part of the country is rich in indigenous culture, and Italian immigrants have left their mark on the mountain town of San Vito, which has the best dining in the area.
