This elegant, plantation-style hotel transports you back to another era. Casa Turire is set in immaculately maintained gardens with the Turrialba volcano as an impressive backdrop if the weather is clear. As well as visits to the hotel’s own working farm there is a lake within the grounds where you can take advantage of the complimentary canoes and kayaks. Mountain bikes are also available for guest use. In addition to the range of activities on offer, Casa Turire lends itself equally well to complete relaxation so can be a great destination to slow the pace of a busy tour around Costa Rica.
