We’ll start our tour by driving up into the mountains of Barva de Heredia. Colonised by Spain in 1561, this town is home to many quaint and charming colonial homes. The town is also surrounded by vast coffee plantations, and coffee cultivation is the town’s main industry. At the top of the mountains, we’ll cross the continental divide to visit a series of waterfalls, as well as a cloud forest and rainforest. You’ll get to take the hiking trails to discover an aviary with numerous species of birds, insect exhibit, serpentarium and butterfly observatory, after this adventure walk, we’ll visit a 100-year-old coffee plantation. We’ll then head to the picturesque town of Grecia, which has the distinction of being one of the cleanest towns in Central America. It’s also an important agricultural hub, where sugarcane is grown and harvested and is known for its unique gothic-style metal church, coloured in a deep, dark red. We’ll continue to Sarchi, a key artisan town best known for the vibrant oxcarts made here — in fact, the largest and oldest oxcart factory is in Sarchi. If you find yourself in love with the carts, you can even buy one straight from the factory to take home with you — talk about a unique souvenir! After all that exploring and shopping, we’ll drive back to San Jose.
