An Adventurer's Paradise
Take on white-water rapids, discover ancient ruins, and witness extraordinary natural beauty.
The picturesque town of Turrialba is heralded as the gateway to the Caribbean and is the go-to destination for any adrenaline junkie visiting Costa Rica. Dominated by the awe-inspiring Turrialba volcano, soaring to an astonishing height of 3,300 metres, this extraordinary destination offers a unique blend of adrenaline-pumping activities and rich cultural experiences. For the adventurous soul with a taste for luxury, Turrialba is the perfect playground.
Set out on a scenic drive from San Jose, where you'll be stunned by the incredible vistas along the way. Sprawling coffee and sugar plantations provide a striking backdrop as you venture closer to the magnificent Turrialba volcano. Prepare to be amazed by its commanding presence, a sight that sets the stage for the adventures that await.
Turrialba boasts some of Costa Rica's finest rafting and kayaking opportunities. Just a short drive away is the renowned Pacuare River, which promises world-class white-water conditions and reveals spectacular canyons enveloped by lush rainforests. We highly recommend undertaking this exhilarating experience from the luxurious Pacuare Lodge, where indulgence and excitement seamlessly intertwine.
Prepare to be spoiled for choice with an impressive array of activities and excursions. Take a horseback ride through the thriving forests, challenge yourself by rappelling down breathtaking waterfalls, and set off on invigorating treks to the Irazu, Poas, and Barva Volcanoes. Traverse the dense jungle in search of elusive sloths, playful capuchin monkeys, elusive ocelots, and colourful toucans. For the most daring, there's even a chance to spot a jaguar. Delve into the local traditions by touring the region's coffee, sugar, and macadamia plantations, immersing yourself in the rich flavours and aromas unique to this extraordinary land.
Immerse yourself in the history of the region with a visit to the pre-Columbian archaeological site, the Guayabo National Monument. Explore the excavated areas of this fascinating "lost city" through well-defined trails. This 2,000-year-old settlement, mysteriously abandoned in AD 1400, offers glimpses into the past, where a population of 10,000 once thrived.
Turrialba awaits, ready to offer a blend of excitement, serenity, and unforgettable experiences. Indulge your adventurous spirit with the allure of this mesmerising destination, where luxury and thrills collide in perfect harmony.
