Drive through towns with names you may have heard before – Los Angeles, Filadelfia, Santa Cruz – but are much different than the ones you may know.  Quick stop for bathroom break, where bottled beverages may be purchased to take on the boat with you.

A trip along the Tempisque and Bebedero Rivers in motorized boats will take you to Palo Verde National Park where mangroves abound. The best bird watching for aquatic species if round right here, as the park is favored by many migratory birds as they escape the cold winters in North and South America.

At the same time, the area’s density gives it a rich mix of mammal, amphibian and reptile life, including the famous crocodiles. An expert naturalist guide will explain all the facets of the park, which simply by itself is a great oasis of Guanacaste’s plains.

After lunch you’ll visit the Diria Coffee Plantation and co-op processing plant. This is a working coffee farm and you will see how coffee is grown, harvested and processed. There will be tasting and samples. Eight or more guest will have a cultural show that is delightful
