"I did not visit the town of Turrialba on this trip, but I was in Turrialba and the surrounding area on my first visit to Costa Rica October 2010. My interest at the time was white water rafting. I like this area of Costa Rica and will visit again for a few days in November."
"If you come from Cartago take the road via Orosi (visit the church!) and Cachi. Stop at "La Casona del Cafetal", a nice restaurant in beautiful grounds directly at the Cachi lake. As we only drove to Casa Turire and away from it, I cannot say anything about the area. We wanted to see how macadamias grow and were recommended to visit Hacienda Tayutic near Pavones. The set-up is a bit touristy but one gets lots of information on coffee growing, sugarcane and macadamias."
