Yori River, the name given by the Votos people that inhabited these rich plains. According to Costa Rican writer and historian Carlos Gagini, Yori’s translation to Spanish is Sarapiquí. By the year 1915 Sarapiquí was only a district of the Heredia Canton.
The biggest town back then, now the 1st District of the Canton, which was known as Sarapiquí, adopted the name of Puerto Viejo. Already regarded as an important access point in 1856, as many ships bound for Costa Rica from Europe, it played an important role in the defense of national sovereignty when the 10th of April the filibuster army under the command of American Mercenary William Walker invades the country through Sarapiquí River but is defeated in the battle of Sardinal by Costa Rican forces.
