Lago Alto is a planned small community under development on an exceptional site of former family farmland overlooking beautiful Lake Cachi in Costa Rica’s Cartago Province, just forty minutes from the capital city of San Jose. After thirty-one estate lot sales to “Ticos” and foreigners, the family owner of Lago Alto has opted to sell or joint venture the property to a more experienced developer to achieve its dream of sharing the family homestead. Parker Associates is assisting the owner to create the best community retreat in the nation.

The Lago Alto site offers breathtaking views of the mountain containing Irazu Volcano, the highest peak in the Central Volcanic Range at 11,260 feet (3,432 meters). The lower Turrialba Volcano (10,958 feet, 3,340 meters) is also visible in the nearby Turrialba National Park. Irazu Volcano hasn’t erupted since 1965. The nearby Playa Hermosa crater is now extinct. On a clear day, visitors to these peaks can glimpse views of both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The climate at the lower elevation of Lago Alto varies between 60 and 80 comfortable degrees Fahrenheit all-year long.

Orosi Valley, at the base of these mountain peaks, features the fast-flowing Reventazon River — one of several fast rivers flowing to the Caribbean Sea from these mountains. The Reventazon carries water released from Lake Cachi through Rio Macho hydroelectric plant, which provides 33 percent of the overall Central Valley’s drinking water in addition to electricity throughout the country. The river below the dam is considered to be arguably the finest rafting and kayaking route of many such waterways along Costa Rica’s eastern slopes. Other recreation, historical, hot springs and botanical centers are located throughout the Orosi Valley and environs within a pleasant drive from Lago Alto. The region’s natural and man-made amenities offer a wide range of activities and attractions for its residents and their guests of all ages.

Lago Alto's varied terrain offers spectacular waterfalls, rivers, and natural forest.

Lago Alto overlooks beautiful Lake Cachi, the second largest freshwater lake in Costa Rica (Lake Arenal, about 30 miles northwest, being the largest). The lake’s water level is controlled by the Rio Macho power station which opens to its strongest release annually in September to handle the summer rains. The rest of the year, it offers its clear water for fishing, boating, sailing and other recreation pursuits supported by lakeside boat rental, camp grounds, a hotel and restaurants.
