 Due to the necessity in protecting the drinkink water which supplies San Isidro Perez Zeledon and other valley towns, and to preserve the flora and fauna,this natural reservoir was opened.
It's administrative center is 6 5 km from San Isidro on the route to Quebradas. This ambitious project, founded by Las Quebradas Biological Center Developing Foundation ( Fundación para el desarrollo del Centro Biológico Las Quebradas FUDEBiOL), has acquired 2.400 ha of mountain forest watered by more than 3.500 mm annual rains and adorned by bromeliads, Ferns, Orchids, Lianas and moss.


Among the variety of birds that take shelter here is the very beautiful Quetzal.

It has a network of paths which cover the most important points of the reservation, and also has designed research and study activities.


Services include: trails, signage, restrooms, drinking water and lodging.
"Las Quebradas" is managed by FUDEBIOL (Fundación para el Desarrollo del Centro Biológico Las Quebradas), which is a non- profit private community organization, whose mission is to stop the destruction of the Quebrada River basin, which is the source of drinking water in San Isidro del General (the main town in the area of Pérez Zeledón).


The project site is located 3 km uphill from "Las Quebradas", between 1000 and 2500 meters above sea level. The main reasons for starting the project on May 13th 1989, was protecting the Quebrada river which supplies water to the whole county of Pérez Zeledón, and trying to save the Pre-mountain rain forest. The Center was also built as an educational center for the community.
