Guayabo  

Monumento arqueológico Guayabo

Description: This monument covers 540 acres (218 ha) and is located on the forested southern slope of Volcán Turrialba. The site is of great archeological and cultural importance even though a very small portion of the city has actually been uncovered and studied. The settlement was occupied between 1000 B.C. and A.D. 1400 after which it was mysteriously abandoned.

Here you will find a wide array of stone paved streets, round platforms which were the base for wooden structures, aqueducts, ponds, carved stone designs and drawings of animals.

Services include parking area, rest rooms, shelters and picnic areas, drinking water, information and exhibition center.
