With the culmination of the railroad in 1890, the Caribbean was integrated with the central valley, Limon with the capital, and the main provincial towns of the republic. This practically became the origin of Turrialba , an area with its own identity.
By the middle of the 20th century, the distribution of the rural population remained, along with the names of the places, precisely due to the support provided by agricultural activities, mainly coffee cultivation, and later sugarcane cultivation. In contrast to the rural population, the urban center is the city of Turrialba, the already established head of the canton.
Turrialba is one of the sugar cane-producing regions that has the greatest identification, roots, and antiquity with the sugar agro-industry in Costa Rica. Sugar cane plantations have been present since the early days of colonization, in the locality of Ujarrás and the current Orosi, from where it gradually expanded with the colonization movements that oriented towards the Atlantic region, involving Turrialba and surrounding populations. In 1915, sugar cane production began in the Florencia district, where to this day, it is the agricultural activity that shelters Hotel Villa Florencia.
