Caldera is Costa Rica’s most important Pacific port and main cargo connection to Asia. The port’s area of influence also includes the United States. Around 80% of Puerto Caldera’s load is import cargo, with 100% of the cereals and bulk fertilizers consumed by the country entering through it. In addition, the terminal concentrates about 1/3 of the country’s total agricultural exports.
Strategically located close to San José (just 76 kilometers by highway) and the country’s main land routes, the terminal is connected to major production, industrial and agricultural centers near the free trade zones in Barranca, Puntarenas and the provinces of Alajuela, Heredia, San José and Cartago.
