Highlights
    What to Expect
    After early morning pickup at your San Jose hotel in an air-conditioned coach, enjoy an on-board breakfast and steaming cup of Costa Rican coffee. 

    Continue on to the Doka Estate coffee plantation, where the same family has been growing and roasting coffee beans for generations. Tour the beautiful, 350-acre (141-hectare) estate, where rich volcanic soil makes an ideal growing coffee-growing climate. Learn how beans are cultivated, harvested, and roasted, and sample an aromatic cup of Doka’s signature brew.

    After  that, head to La Paz Waterfall Gardens, a private nature reserve that boasts miles of scenic hiking trails and more than 100 species of native wildlife housed in various habitats. Meet some of Costa Rica’s tiniest winged creatures at the Hummingbird Garden and Butterfly Observatory, and get an up-close encounter with reptilian residents at the frog exhibit and serpentarium. Soak up the lush tropical scenery with a riverside hike, stopping at one of the many waterfalls along the way. 

    Break for a lunch of traditional Costa Rican cuisine before driving back to San Jose, where you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel in the afternoon.

    Amazing. Absolutely amazing. More than I expected. The bus has room for you to keep your backpack (for you backpackers). Bring a light jacket (rain jacket) and a hat. Blown away. So happy!
