Option: 2 - City walking tour

You can choose to go on this tour in the morning or the afternoon as it will start out at 8:00 am OR 1:00 pm

Option: 3 -  Co-op Santa Maria De dota

How much do you really know about where (or should we say, who) your coffee comes from, about what is given in return for the ideal product that so many of us consume on a daily basis, and about what all goes into making the perfect cup of coffee beyond cream and sugar? Costa Rica coffee is incredible. Arguably one of the best coffees in the world, it is no surprise that some of the biggest brewers including Starbucks and Tim Hortons opt for Tico beans. This is your chance of a lifetime to learn their coffee processing methods, buy or import.

 We travel today in style by SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle). The journey takes 2.5 hours travel time one way. You have the option of an overnight stay at Cabana Cecilia for an extended visit or return back to San Jose on the same day.
