Location: Costa Rica, Central Valley, Cartago, Province
This full day tour starts with an early morning ride ascending to the Irazú Volcano Summit, the highest Volcano in Costa Rica. There you will visit the main crater of the massif. On a very clear day – if you are lucky enough - it is possible to see both the Caribbean and the Pacific coast.
After the visit of the volcano you will make a stop in Cartago, the former capital of Costa Rica and visit the Basilica “Virgen de Los Angeles - Mother of Costa Rica” and the ruins of the old parish.
Next stop is at the beautiful Lankester Gardens; a place with more than 800 different varieties of orchids and tropical plants.
Afterwards the tour continues with a ride through the Orosi Valley famous for its rich soil, abundant plant life and coffee plantations.
You will enjoy lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking a coffee plantation, before heading back to San José to arrive there in the early evening.
If you appreciate the beauty of nature & culture, this is just the perfect choice for you!
