Irazu Volcano, Orosi Valley and Lankester Garden Tour

After picking you up from your hotel in San José, we'll head to the province of Cartago, the old capital of Costa Rica and the place where the Irazu Volcano is located. On the journey we'll admire fertile lands and an abundance of plants and wildlife

At 3,432 metres high, the Irazu Volcano is considered to be the most active volcano in Costa Rica. We'll explore one of its craters and marvel at a fascinating green lake of varying depth. What's more, views of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean from the volcano will take your breath away.

After visiting the Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels in the city of Cartago, we'll head to the Lankester Gardens, where we'll admire over 800 species of orchids and plants. Between the months of February and April, we'll get to see many different species blossoming. 

Our tour will end in the Orosi Valley, where the landscape is rich and diverse. We'll also visit the church of Orosi, the oldest Catholic church in Costa Rica. It was built in the colonial era and is still standing today. 

Before returning to San José, we'll recharge our batteries with a traditional Costa Rican meal. The menu consists of rice, beans, salad, meat (chicken, fish or pork), mince, plantain and juice. If you want a vegetarian or gluten-free menu, you must specify this when you book.

At the end of the tour, we'll take you back to your hotels in San José.
