The beginning of the tour takes place through the Panamerican Higway, heading to the South region of Costa Rica, through the Irazú Volcano. The winding road leads through fertile lands cultivated with all kinds of agricultural products and at the same time, we are embellished by an extraordinary panoramic view. On clear days, when we reach the top of the volcano we might observe its main craters and maybe even both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen.
As we descend to the city of Cartago we will stop at the Virgin of the Angels Basilica, the most important peregrination site for many Catholic believers. After visiting the Basilica we will stop at Lankester Gardens, a University of Costa Rica Center for investigation that protects more than 800 species of orchids, bromeliads and countless other species of other plants.
Later on, we will continue to the Valley of Orosi, where sceneries of unparalleled beauty await for you. On this location, we will visit one of the few colonial churches that still stand in Costa Rica and we’ll enjoy our lunch in one of the local restaurants.
