Fly Through San Carlos in This Music Video

Travel through the physical and cultural landscapes of San Carlos in this video. San Carlos, which Ticos call the Northern Zone of Costa Rica, is home to the tourist mecca of La Fortuna. But the region has much more than the admittedly impressive volcanoes, waterfalls, and hot springs. Before tourists arrived, farming and ranching were the main activities. And outside of La Fortuna, they remain so. This video shows small-town festivals, rodeos, and other elements of San Carlos’s deeply agricultural culture.

This work is called Norte Atípico, Atypical North, and was produced by Jars Air. Luis Morales, a welder from San Carlos, wrote the song, performed here by the Costa Rican group ChiquiChiqui. If you don’t speak Spanish, the song is a traditional tune that talks about how beautiful San Carlos is. But you don’t have to speak Spanish to know that: just by watching the video you’ll see for yourself.
