I started out with this experience realizing it was going to take some expense and time to get to Aquiares' La Esperanza. I even considered cancelling when I realized this. I am glad I didn't! Well worth the time and expense to get to the location. We arrived in the morning to La Esperanza and we were absolutely awestruck by this home. It's over 100 years old and has been recently updated while keeping all the charm. We enjoyed a light breakfast outside overlooking the volcano and gardens. Then our education of the town, people, company and plantation commenced. At every turn, we were enamored by the people and the educational aspect of the tour. This is what tourism should be all about. We loved it. We were a private group of four of us, and we felt like we received the VIP treatment the entire time. We saw how coffee starts out from seed, learned the educational aspects of the whole process, learned how the plantation operates, visited a national historic monument church located
We did not know when booking this was a personal 1 on 1 tour with just the guide/driver and us. It was simply an incredible day! We went places and experienced real Costa Rica with Marcelo other tours simply can’t do. We had a wonderful day and experienced sights other tours don’t offer. Thumbs up to this company for what they are offering for a great price.
I was hoping to do more tasting along the way but the meal at the end was absolutely delicious and worth the wait! It was nice to sit and talk with our guide, Gladys—a local full of knowledge and passion about Costa Rica, about life in Costa Rica. It was a special and unique experience.
Eric is a great tour guide ! I had an awesome time and the dinner was amazing! A tour you should definitely do if your visiting San Jose.
