  • Museo Volcanológico

    Cartago Off The Beaten Path

    Some 4 km below the Irazú parking we passed by a private volcanology museum. We wanted to see it, but it was closed. However in the garden was a feeding bottle attracting humingbirds. So here are a few pics of these likeable creatures.

  • OK Breakfasts in great setting

    Orosí Restaurants

    The Orosi Lodge serves decent breakfasts and is worth a visit if you're in town for a few days. Definitely not the cheapest option, but the porch is lovely and the complimentary pineapple jam is great. I was very disappointed when served Tang (my husband thought it was Sunny Delight) as the "juice" that came with my breakfast. I'd understand this...

  • Best meals in Orosi!

    Orosí Restaurants

    Super friendly staff and excellent food. Very cute atmosphere - straw on the roof and wooden benches make for a friendly little hut in the middle of town. Homemade hot sauce was great. My husband loved all of the meat dishes he had there and I was more than happy with my vegetarian plates of rice, beans, plantains, chayote, avocado, salad etc.! No...

  • Few places after hours

    Turrialba Nightlife

    It's a small town so don't expect anything spectacular but it can be fun sometimes at Charlie's Bar (inside little shopping center next to main red taxi terminal). Most people eventually gravitate to this place as the hours progress. Very casual dress, music varies, some good food options. It's small and sometimes can be quite hot so dress cool....

    Turrialba Nightlife

    It gets really cold at night. I guess if you're from Siberia you won't notice, but, for us it was cold. Couple that with the aforementioned "nothing to do" and sleeping is the most obvious option (well, maybe second most). Lots of blankets and you'll need that electric heater too. Blankets

  • Scenery at dawn

    Chirripó Favorites

    Just being so far from everything, having to walk hours up through sceneries that transform as you ascend, knowing you are so close to nature. Waking in the morning in the base camp, and walking out onto the hills around just taking in the view..
