Built with beautiful rustic wood, Turrialtico Mountain Lodge is a beautifully designed mountain lodge. The hotel balcony offers the breathtaking views of the Turrialba valley, the Turrialba Volcano and the Talamanca mountain range. Turrialba Valley is located in east side of Cartago Province. Here you can find a unique charm and essence, very different to the popular and regular touristic places in other parts of the country. Activities such as kayaking, white water rafting on the river rapids, and the biological diversity, convert Turrialba into one of the sites most liked by those seeking scientific tourism and adventure.
Another great attraction is Turrialba Volcano. Out of the 112 volcanoes in Costa Rica, five are active today, including Turrialba Volcano in Cartago, which saw its largest eruption in 150 years on Oct. 30. On the other hand, The Cordillera de Talamanca is a mountain range that lies on the border between Costa Rica and Panama. Tropical rainforests cover most of the area. Four different Indian tribes inhabit this property, which benefits from close co-operation between Costa Rica and Panama. Turrialtico is an excellent spot for birdwatching as it’s surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens that nest a wide variety of birds.
