Near the outskirts of town visitors can stop by the Puente de las Damas, or the “Ladies’ Bridge.” This is a historical landmark that was built in the 19th century thanks to the contributions of influential ladies in Esparza. Esparza has a bustling downtown, with a range of shops and an outdoor market.

Just a few minutes outside of town visitors can visit Piedra de Fuego, a local wildlife preserve that covers 1,359 acres (550 ha). You can hike past a clear river, and see local birds with vibrant plumage. There are 6.2 miles (10 km) of trail for you to explore.
