Also known by its municipal name, Pérez Zeledón serves as Costa Ballena’s closest city center.
With many professional services available, like international financial institutions, it is also surrounded by the rural agriculture which keeps the city bustling. When visiting, it provides a prime opportunity to stock up on supplies and refuel before heading out to more remote locations. Theaters, universities and automotive dealerships are found in ‘PZ’. The Inter-Americana Highway passes through the city that connects to San José. As you pass through and drive towards Dominical, the drive provides awe-inspiring views of the countryside landscape and an additional highlight, you drive through an area designated the cloud forest, which always delivers a breeze of fresh mountain air.
