The best kept secret in Costa Rica

Turrialba is a territory rich in ecosystems, full of plants and animals. This is the result of its geographical location: an area of 30 km² where there are temperatures close to 0 ° C – in the area surrounding the volcano – to the tropical climate of the town – which can exceed 35 ° C -.

Its economy depends on activities such as agriculture (coffee, sugar cane, pejibaye and macadamia), dairy farming (one of the most renowned cheeses bears his name) and tourism.

The raft (popularly known by its English name, rafting), is the king among tourists. To practice it highlights the Pacuare River, named as one of the 10 best rivers in the world for exercise and for families the Pejibaye River (with rapids II and III) is a perfect place that combines safety and fun. In addition, options for amusement are available through canyoning, mountain biking and hiking through local forests.
