Archaeological site

Tour description

Veiled in the shadow of the Turrialba Volcano, like a mythical "lost city" from a storybook, lies a mysterious ancient city that was home to over 10,000 people who seemed to have mysteriously vanished just before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. This region, known as Guayabo National Monument, is Costa Rica's most important archaeological site and it’s only named National Monument.
A guide will walk you through the park while explaining the findings of the excavations and the history of the people that once lived there.
Your guide will show you around this ancient area, that is geographically the perfect center-point of all of the Americas. Experience these ancient ruins in Costa Rica that hold a world of mysteries and unanswered questions!
