Atenas (Spanish pronunciation: [a’tenas]) is the fifth canton in the province of Alajuela in Costa Rica. The canton covers an area of 127.19 square kilometers (49.11 sq mi) and has a population of 27,112 (estimate as of 2013). The origin of the name dates back to 1833, when the area was known as “Sabana Larga”, and the then Head of State, Don José Rafael de Gallegos, admirer of Greek civilization, proposed that the new population be called Athens. It is popularly said that Atenas enjoys the ‘best climate in the world’; the reason for this attribution is that climatic factors like temperature and humidity are stable all year round, with temperatures ranging from 19 Celsius at night to 34 Celsius during the day with a yearly average of 26 Celsius. It is a fairly compact canton, mountainous for the most part. The Río Grande (Great River) forms the border on the canton’s north and east sides. As the river moves south, it is joined by two other large rivers, the Río Poás and the Río Virilla, before turning west again and forming the canton’s southern border under a new name, the Río Grande de Tárcoles. The western border of the canton is established by a series of quebradas (canyons) that cut through the Coastal Mountain Range.
