In addition to the places listed here, check out Turrialtico ★ (tel).2538-1111), a simple hotel with an open-air restaurant on a hill overlooking the Turrialba Valley. The view here is one of the finest in the area, with volcanoes in the distance. The Costa Rican food is good and reasonably priced, and a double room in the rambling old wooden building will cost $64 to $75, including breakfast and taxes. Turrialtico is popular with rafting companies that bring groups for meals and overnights before, during, and after multiday rafting trips.
