"Tranquility" Turrialba by kyoub

Turrialba Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 40 photos

Private nature reserve

Fields of sugar cane and coffee are spread out along the landscape in this area.
From Turrialba it is a 1.7 miles bumpy ride, up a dirt road to the mountain retreat of Rancho
Naturalista.
Irazu and Turrialba volcanoes dominate the skyline.
Tropical forest is only steps away from the lodge.

    This sounds a lovely place to stay, especially with that great balcony on which to rock and enjoy the view :)

    That looks like a great lodge nestled in some very interesting countryside!! Sounds like a perfect spot to just relax in for a while.

    The old sugar press looks interesting and I would enjoy the birding, but I think I'd give the horses a miss :-)
