Terraba Sierpe Ramsar Wetland

 
 Located at the mouth of the Térraba and Sierpe rivers, this forest ecosystem is periodically flooded by tidal action and has a good supply of mud, rich in organic material.

Common tree species include red and piñuela mangroves.

Numerous seabirds, fish, crustaceans and mollusks inhabit the mangrove swamps, which are their ideal breeding ground. Many canals connect and interweave this ecosystem and allow them to be explored on boat tours, departing from Sierpe.

Considered the richest mangrove swamp in the world in terms of biodiversity, this wetland comprises a total of 27,066 hectares of protected forest. Within this preserve, a project unique in Costa Rica is in operation, consisting of the sustainable use of 200 hectares of forest.

Traditional and modern techniques are used to generate revenue from the mangrove swamps while ensuring the ecosystem’s survival.

Location: At the mouth of the Térraba and Sierpe rivers. Sierpe, Costa Rica.
