Turrialba

 

Several cities developed and prospered as a result of the building of the railroad to the Caribbean; Turrialba is one of these, and its architectural, spatial and ethnic makeup is different from other towns. Declared a City of National Archeological Interest, this town is the entryway to the Costa Rican Caribbean.
 
This area became the outpost of "aficionados" of kayaking and rafting. Pineapple,  sugar cane, banania and macadamia plantations, turbulent rivers (Rio Pacuare and Rio Reventazon) dot the beautiful landscape and paisaible campaign. With the only important archaeological site in the country, Guayabo Monument, and near the volcanoes Turrialba and Irazu this region has become a well-liked place of residence.
 
Going into the Talamanca cordillera, you can meet the Indian Cabecares and live for a day with these villagers and their indigenous traditions.
