The Exuberant land and the people of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is known worldwide for the excellence of its agricultural products (coffee and pineapple in the first place). Depending upon locations and altitude, many regions differ in agricultural crops and techniques. The main exports include bananas, sugar, vegetables, tropical fruits, ornamental plants, corn potatoes, and palm oil.
Costa Rican farmers and multinational corporations include practices two primary methods of farming: Plantation agriculture which includes practices by global companies such as Dole, Chiquita, Del Monte, and sustainable permaculture. There are also numerous indigenous communities that practice subsistence farming.
The program we are proposing combines all these aspects into a single itinerary. Unfolding across different areas of the country, you will discover the varied agricultural productions and to get to know its protagonists directly.
You will have the opportunity to experience the notable hospitality of the local Tico people (as they are traditionally called in Latin America).
Essentially, this tour offers authentic experiences, profoundly connecting you to the local reality instead of providing a standard touristic perspective.
In this package, we have included a mixture of various agricultural experiences, along with nature-based tours and cultural visits that make this a well-rounded program of unmissable experiences in Costa Rica.
We also hope you will enjoy the relaxing break on the splendid coast of Guanacaste at the end of the trip
