Aquiares means 'land between rivers' in the Huetar indigenous language; in this case, the Aquiares and Turrialba rivers. Aquiares is also a community of 2,000 people who, together with the estate, create a solid synergy.
Aquiares is committed to sustainability and it applies eco-friendly practices on a large scale.
