Alajuela is the capital of the province with the same name, which is he second important of the country.
The Juan Santamaría-Airport (the main airport of the capital San José) is only 3 km away from Alajuela.
Juan Santamaría, the national hero of Costa Rica, who fought successfully against the American army commanded by William Walker, was born in Alajuela in the year 1831, therefore the city doesn't miss the absence neither of a Juan Santamaría-museum nor a Juan Santamaría-statue on the main square.
