Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Sarapiqui
Sarapiqui is about 100 km from San José and is a great place to make a stop if you’re travelling from the Caribbean cost. Here you’ll stay in a family-run bungalow lodge. The garden has a swimming pool, a frog garden and a restaurant where tour groups often come for a quick bite to eat on the way to La Fortuna. The spacious rooms are simple but clean and have a small terrace.
Visit to Pineapple Farm & Departure
The next morning, you’ll visit Don Rodolfo and his family. On their farm he’ll tell you all about his experiences of farming these tropical fruits in Costa Rica. You’ll also see how pineapples are grown; this is actually quite intriguing as these huge fruits don’t hang from the trees as you might expect, but grow upwards from the ground.
You’ll fish for your own lunch in the local pond, which your hosts will turn into a tasty meal. You’ll either travel to the farm in your hire car, or we’ll arrange taxi transfers for you. The next day it’s time to wave goodbye to the pineapple plantations and tropical fruits of Sarapiqui. After breakfast you’ll hop into your hire car or jump aboard the shuttle bus to your next destination.
