A real Costa Rican Experience with an harmonious combination of adventure an culture... early in the morning our guide will show up to take you from your hotel to the Poas Volcano area, an amazing spot with beautiful landscapes
First stop will be at Corso Lecheria where the local guides and a tractor will await for you to discover the real costa rican farming life:pastures, cloud forest, volcano views along with the hands-on activities such as milking the cows or collecting strawberries will provide you with a unique experience. Preparing our own tortillas and a delicious typical lunch are the perfect ending for our first stop. For your second stop, we welcome you to Hacienda Alsacia, Starbucks first and only coffee farm in the world.

See firsthand the work being done to partner with local farmers, promote sustainable practices, and develop the next generation of coffee in Costa Rica and around the globe.

Through this unique cultural tour, you will take valuable tools that you can apply to choose authentic handicraft in any country where you are. It is a revealing learning experience about the Costa Rican culture and its talented people.
