Costa Rica 1924. Map of Guanacaste Area.

Inscribed in 1999, it was extended with the addition of a 15,000-ha private property, St Elena. It contains important natural habitats for the conservation of biological diversity, including the best dry forest habitats from Central America to northern Mexico and key habitats for endangered or rare plant and animal species. 

The site demonstrates significant ecological processes in both its terrestrial and marine-coastal environments.
