Full description
Begin the day with pickup from select hotels in Jaco. Visit the Doka Coffee Estate for a delicious breakfast. Then, begin your tour of an actual coffee plantation. Learn the ancient techniques used by experts to produce some of the best coffee in Costa Rica and the world. After the coffee tour, continue to Poas Volcano National Park, an active, 8,885-foot stratovolcano. The crater of the volcano is over a mile across and 1,050 feet deep. It has erupted 40 times since 1828, including recently in 2017. Take some time to enjoy the impressive main crater with its sulfur fumaroles, and hike on a trail to the beautiful Botos Lagoon as you hear about the different ecosystems in the park. Continue to La Paz Waterfall Garden, where you will enjoy a buffet lunch that includes traditional Costa Rican dishes. At the waterfall, walk on trails surrounded by lush tropical rain forest, and marvel at the flowing white rivers, spectacular waterfalls, birds, butterflies, monkeys, and hummingbirds. There are also educational animal exhibits to enjoy such as the Aviary, the Butterfly Observatory, Hummingbird Garden, Serpentarium, Jungle Cats Exhibit, and the Frog Exhibit.

Great tour!! Lovely guide - Mao - very friendly, knowledgeable, pleasure to spend the day with. I have never been to a coffee plantation before - was very interesting to see how coffee is made. The volcano was stunning!! We got very lucky as the park was closed in the morning due to some volcanic activity, but it reopened very shortly after we arrived. Would have been disappointing to miss that part of the tour. Last stop was La Paz - which was absolutely beautiful, buffet lunch had good variety and was in the middle of the rainforest. Such a great experience!
