The North of Costa Rica borders Nicaragua across 309 kilometers. There are two official border points: Peñas Blancas to the West, and Tablillas to the East. UNHCR has identified over 20 irregular entry points both in maritime and terrestrial areas. Asylum-seekers and refugees live in approximately 150 communities along the border. Since 2018, UNHCR consolidated its presence on the northern border of Costa Rica with a field office in Upala. Currently, the Field Office of Upala and implementing partners have presence in five border cantons: Upala, La Cruz, Los Chiles, Guatuso and San Carlos.
