Besides it’s natural exuberance, Costa Rica holds great cultural richness and communities that show the real costarrican people. Here we have some of those places to explore:
•Hola Costa Rica: After welcome you to our country, our driver and a tourist guide will introduce you to Slow Tourism Costa Rica.
•Transportation, San Jose Turrialba: Once you are ready, we will visit the Central Valley and then head to Turrialba.
•Guayabo National Monument: After a big typical breakfast, we will go to Guayabo in Turrialba to see the biggest villages in Costa Rica with more than 2000 years old: The Guayabo National Monument. This archeological site has great importance for our country; it is the only one in America, along with Machu Picchu, listed as Architectural Heritage of Humanity. This part of history and the glimpse of their lifestyle will give us the tools to understand the lives of our current indigenous peoples.
•Transportation, Turrialba- Bribri: Early in the morning, right after breakfast, we will go to the small community of Bambú. From this point, we will use a road traveled by our native people since ancient times: the Yorkín River.
•Coexistence: Our lodge will be very similar to the Bribrí ones. They have made our rooms more private and mosquito-free, but they are basically the same conditions. We will have solar energy during day hours for our needs. The cold shower will help us refresh in this tropical weather. Our friends are living between our culture and their ancient culture so you will see they have same clothes and some amenities as in the city but in the middle of the jungle and amazing knowledge.
•Traditions: To begin with, we will take a small tour by the town; some landmarks like the hanging bridge, the church, high school and soccer field. If we have any luck, we can attend a soccer match in the afternoon. We will learn a few things about cocoa and its ancient value in the native communities. We will also try our skills by making embellished jícaras; a type of pumpkin traditionally used to store water and now makes a great souvenir or whatever they would like to offer to do.
•Transportation, Yorkin- Cahuita: After our return trip on the Yorkín river, our van will be waiting for you again at Bambú to go relax near the beach all day long.
•Caribbean Style: We can spend our days relaxing on the beach or arrange a visit to Cahuita National Park, Snorkel tour, hiking and more.
•Transportation, Cahuita- San Jose: One of our drivers will drive you to the central valley, it could be to the airport or to any hotel.
•Welcome to Costa Rica: After a warming welcome to Costa Rica, our driver will take you to the South of the country.
•Transportation, San Jose- San Gerardo: As we know flights are very tiring, we will take to San Gerardo de Dota so you can rest amongst the Costa Rican clouds.
•Walking in the clouds: At sunrise we will realize that we are in the middle of the forest. The high part of Talamanca is one of the most exuberant places of our country and there is nothing better to recharge our energy to continue our adventure.
•Transportation, San Gerardo- Puerto Jimenez: After breakfast we will go straight to Puerto Jimenez in Osa, where we will find a big hustle not coming from the city, but from the Red Macaws that live in this beautiful town.
•Horseback riding to waterfall: We will start the day with a horse riding that will take us from Dos Brazos community to El Salto Waterfall.
