Central Valley - San Jose
Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee, Grecia & Sarchi

To embark on this tour we will take the Pan-American Highway towards the city of Alajuela. En route, we will see the Agriculture Monument, the Monument to Juan Santamaria, and the popular Mango Park. As we ascend towards the volcano we stop for a brief explanation on our golden bean, coffee, and then continue our trip through fern, flower and strawberry farms.
At the Poas Volcano, we will have time to enjoy the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles, and hike on a trail to the beautiful Botos Lagoon. After visiting the volcano, we will have time to enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the typical restaurants of the area.
Our next stop is the town of Grecia, considered one of the cleanest towns of Latin America, and home to the only Metal Church in Central America. In order to catch a glimpse of local lifestyle we will also visit the central market area.
Our last stop is Sarchi town, known as the Cradle of Costa Rican Artisans because of its fine workshops. Here we will have time to enjoy the artistic work of the local artisans as they create the famous typical oxcart; you will be able to shop for souvenirs to take home.
