Barva is in the province of Heredia.
Barva is one of the most folkloric towns in Costa Rica. Every year a mask parade is held and the center of the town stills remains and feels like a town from the beginning of the 20th century.
It is possible to arrive from Heredia to the South, and from Santa Barbara to the West.
There is a small plaza or park in the center across the Parroquia.
