The first to the south Talamanca Mountain, one to the north Turrialba volcano, town of Santa Cruz to the east and mountains and pastures to the west. When the climate isn’t too rough and the weather is seemingly normal the four of the highest mountains can be observed from afar, they are the Chirripo, the massif Cerro de la Muerte and Turrialba Volcano. The last but not considered least is the Irazu volcano; this mountain is not visible from the Guayabo lodge but can be visited separately.
