Day 1 Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee Plantation and Sarchí
1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Begin this Costa Rica tour with breakfast at a local café, followed by a trip to the Poas Volcano National Park. This national park is home to a variety of wildlife, including tapirs, coyotes, hummingbirds, and perhaps the wildest of them all, the Poas Volcano. One of four active volcanoes in Costa Rica, the Poas's steaming crater bubbles with life.
The afternoon continues with a tour of the Doka Coffee Plantation. Watch how coffee is picked, milled and ground, then sample the results! If you eyes are still a little heavy from an early morning, they are sure to perk up from the rich aroma and flavorful tastes of a hot cup of Costa Rican coffee. At this three-generation coffee plantation, discover first hand - or cup - what makes Costa Rican coffee so popular.
Finish your Costa Rica extension with a visit to the artisan town of Sarchí, known throughout Costa Rica for its beautiful and intricate arts and crafts and souvenirs. Sarchí is most known for the vibrant, beautifully painted oxcarts that have been made here for over a hundred years. Arrive back at the hotel around 5:00 pm - just in time to drop a postcard to friends and family back home!
This tour is approximately 11 hours.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
