Being one of the oldest towns in Costa Rica, exotic tourist location Cartago possesses a rich history and beautiful sights that will leave visitors gaping in awe. I won’t lie, but if you’re all for Caribbean travel and exotic vacations, then you might as well skip this town in your itinerary. However, those who cannot seem to get enough of nature will appreciate Cartago for some of the greenest tracks of land in this part of the world. That and another penile reference in the Volcan Irazu.

Unlike most towns in the country, Cartago is perhaps an ideal place for visitors to stay in because the place is situated approximately 5,000 feet above sea level, which explains the cool and dry weather appropriate for those who prefer a chilly climate.

However, the main attraction of the region is the historical landmarks that will help you understand the awesomeness that is Costa Rica. Back then in the 16th century, Cartago was one of the best regions in the country due to its architecture headed by the Iglesia del Convento, the first church of the country built in 1635. However, no thanks to that lava-spewing, molten-ejecting Volcan Irazu, the whole town was destroyed by the tragic volcanic eruption in 1732.

Regardless, the destruction happened to a be a good thing because the town was turned into a tourist destination, with the rubble of the Iglesia del Convento being the highlight of it all. You gotta love tourism.

Aside from these things, Cartago is also known for being a shopping destination, spearheaded by its Sunday markets carrying various goods and products to people. After a day’s worth of traveling and feasting your eyes on some godly sights, it’s probably appropriate to treat yourself with things that you don’t really need, but will make you feel good after purchasing them.
