Arenal Huetar Norte Conservation Area

Arenal Huetar Norte Conservation Area is an administrative area which is managed by SINAC for the purposes of conservation in the northern part of Costa Rica. It contains a National Park, and number of Wildlife refuges and Forest Reserves. It has been proposed that the Maquenque National Park be formed in this area, which would incorporate some of the existing nature reserves and expand on them.
