History of San Isidro de El General in Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica.

The crossroad that existed in this área was once known as The Pigs' Ravine.  It was named San Isidro in 1910.  Mains and water services started operating in 1943.  In 1948 the Government Board managed a telephone network to connect El General, Daniel Flores and Rivas  with San Isidro.  The pictures above show the main park with the first church dedicated to San Isidro Labrador built in 1914 and the Cathedral today constructed in 1956.

The Inter-Americana Highway passes right by it, providing awe-inspiring views of the landscape below unless magnificent clouds haven’t shrouded the area. After some weather permitting picturesque views from atop the ridge, you begin to meander your way down into Valle de El General and to the all important city of San Isidro de El General, or, Pérez Zeledón as it is also known by its municipal name.
