Villa Florencia prides itself on offering comfortable accommodation that is as self-sustainable as possible.  The idea is that you enjoy your stay and the surrounding area knowing that you are leaving as small a footprint as possible.  The staff here are friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and will happily share this knowledge with you. Turrialba is simply stunning.  The sugar cane plantations, coffee farms and verdant vegetation make this another beautiful part of the country.  This area lends itself to hiking, relaxing, horse riding and also the excitement and thrill of white-water rafting on the Río Pacuare, also nearby is the Guayabo archaeological site, the remains of a pre-Colombian city  – what’s not to like?
