Costa Rica is full of different places to discover with landscapes that range from stunning beaches in both the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, to volcanoes, rivers, jungles and mountains. This country has it all! We want to invite you for a fun hike in the Guayabo National Monument in Turrialba. Follow us!

Located in the province of Cartago, Turrialba offers a dazzling landscape with its own volcano (the Turriabla Volcano), a butterfly farm and the Guayabo National Monument. It is also very close to the stunning Irazu Volcano, which we recommend you visit.

The Guayabo National Monument is an archeological site  that was built approximately 3,000 years ago. The hike around the area will take us through a beautiful rainforest where we might spot toucans, brown jays, armadillos, squirrels, and coatis. We’ll also explore the petroglyphs and tombs in the area. There is still no clear reason as to why the population that used to live in the site disappeared, which adds some mystery to the adventure.

So, are you ready to discover a stunning place full of mystery in Costa Rica? Then send the request to book your place now and get ready to discover  this mythical place!
