Campo Escuela Nacional Iztarú

Located in La Carpintera Protected Area, and 17 kilometers (10 miles) from San José, CENI holds 77 hectares (190 acres) of tropical rainforests; surrounded by beautiful landscapes, wild fauna, water springs, and waterfalls. The annual average temperature is 16.6o C (62o F).

CENI has camping zones to accommodate 2500 young people at the same time. The camping zones are named after native indigenous leaders: Quepo, Kamaquiri, Chirripó, Aquitava, Garabito, Curime, Cocorí, Nosara, and Coo.

The place has a newly built dining room for 400 people comfortably seated. Also three collective bedrooms, each with a 50-people capacity, six huts with two bunk beds each, three classrooms for 50 people each, a nursing area, a meteorological station, storage spaces, and a workshop. The place also has a climbing tower, an adventure trail, and two ecological trails.
CENI is a model center for environmental conservation practices for the more than 12,000 visitors coming every year: At CENI we recycle, reforest, produce alternative energy (solar and eolic); we also save electricity, water, paper, and fuel.

In 2009, CENI also proudly became a “Scouts of the World Base”
