Nearby Guayabo National Park is one of Costa Rica's only pre-Colombian sites to be excavated and open to the public...If you are looking for some luxury in this area, check out Casa Turire...well appointed rooms and suites in an elegant, country mansion.
"This timeless hotel looks like a manor house that has survived...from the turn of the 20th Century. Casa Turire is an exercise in elegance and attention to detail...featuring high ceiling guest rooms, small balconies and bright bathrooms with tubs."
