What You Can Expect
Sarchi Explore Costa Rica?s rich architectural and agricultural heritage on this half-day combo tour. Your local guide will pick you up at your San Jose hotel for the scenic drive to the Doka Estate coffee plantation. Here you can see workers cultivating and roasting coffee beans and learn how they have perfected the process to produce the perfect cup. Enjoy a taste of the plantation?s aromatic brew along with a traditional buffet lunch.
Properly caffeinated, you will next drive through fields of sugarcane to the town of Grecia. This picturesque village is best known for its striking Lady of Mercy cathedral, constructed completely of painted red metal plates. Have a walk around the town and snap some photos to remember the unusual architectural sights.
Continue on to Sarch?, an artisan town famous for building traditional oxcarts. Originally used to haul coffee beans across Costa Rica?s mountain ranges to the coast for shipping, these unique handmade carts are now crafted as part of the country?s artistic heritage.
