Departing San Jose early in the morning, we will head straight to the spectacular summit of the Irazu Volcano, the highest active volcano in Costa Rica. At the summit, you can peer down into the mystical green lagoon or take in the extraordinary views. On a clear day on the summit of Irazu Volcano, you have the chance of seeing both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans...amazing!!
After the Irazu volcano, we will descend back to the historical city of Cartago. We will visit the mysterious ruins of the old cathedral and view the beautiful Basilica of our "Virgen de los Angeles" with rich displays of carvings, statues, stained glass and art.
Next stop is the breathtaking Lankester Gardens. Here you will find over 800 species of orchids, bromeliads, and other plants under protection of the University of Costa Rica. Whether you are an avid orchid lover or just appreciate their beauty, a visit to the Lankester Gardens in Costa Rica is a must.
Finally, for our last stop of this combo tour we head into the Valley of Orosi. Here we will stop for a delicious lunch at a typical Costa Rican restaurant with a wonderful view of the surrounding valley. Take in the spectacular scenery along the way to visit the famous Casa del Soñador. The 'casa' is made of recycled wood and carvings. Inside you will meet the artisan who carves statuettes from the trunks, roots, and branches or coffee wood. This Costa Rica folk art is truly unique to this region.
