The Eternal Forest of Children (BEN) is the largest private reserve in the country with an area of 20,000 hectares of protected tropical forests in northwestern Costa Rica. The BEN borders the Arenal Volcano National Park, the upper part of Monteverde and Miramar, reaches the Alberto Manuel Brenes Reserve in San Ramón. Continue through the San Carlos area, near the cities of San Jorge, La Tigra, San Isidro de Penas Blancas, Chachagua and El Castillo.
The BEN exists thanks to the help of children, adults and people from all over the world who have participated in a movement known as the Eternal Forest of children. This fundraising campaign began in Sweden and the United States in 1987, and then expanded throughout the world. To date, 44 countries have contributed to the acquisition and protection of BEN lands.
Currently the BEN is part of the Agua y Paz Biosphere Reserve and was declared on September 18, 2007 by UNESCO.
