San Vito Costa Rica
San Vito, the regional capital of the area, is situated along Hwy 237 about 40 miles (65 km) to the northeast of [Golfito](/costa-rica/destinations/golfito). Tucked away deep in the southwestern quadrant of the country, in a narrow valley between the Talamanca Mountain Range and Fila Costena, the small quaint city provides a good starting point for surrounding attractions. Surveying the surrounding landscape, visitors can bare witness to baron patches in the forest, revealing the scar caused by deforestation.
