Costa Rica may not be famous for its archaeological history like Tikal in Guatemala or Peru's Inca ruins, but cloaked in the shadow of the Turrialba Volcano like a mythical "lost city" from a storybook lies a mysterious ancient city that was the Home to more than 10,000 people who seemed to have mysteriously disappeared shortly before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century.

This region, known as the Guayabo National Monument, is the most important archaeological site in Costa Rica and its only monument called National.

In Guayabo, archaeological structures such as roads, mounds, bridges, collection tanks and aqueducts, among others, are protected. In addition, it protects

patches of tall evergreen forests typical of the premontane rain forest.
