Only have one day in San Jose and want to make the best of your Costa Rica experience? We suggest our best-selling sightseeing tour in San Jose, the Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee Plantation & La Paz Waterfall Gardens tour. There is no better sightseeing tour in Costa Rica that offers you a most complete experience of the heart of Costa Rica's central valley.
Departing San Jose, we will head out on the Pan American Highway towards the Poas Volcano National Park. To break up the drive, we will make a quick stop in the city of Mangos (Alajuela) and stretch our legs a bit. You will get the opportunity to visit the Agriculture Monument, the Monument of Juan Santa Maria (Costa Rica's national hero), and stroll through Mango Park.
Back on the highway as we gain in elevation, you will notice that the lush green picturesque agriculture evolves into a cool damp cloud forest climate. A bit further up the highway where the conditions are perfect, we will stop at a the Doka Coffee Plantation where you have the opportunity to learn about one of Costa Rica's treasured crops….coffee beans! Here you will enjoy a delicious breakfast with the main star being the freshest cup of Costa Rica coffee you have ever experienced.
After the Doka Costa Rica Coffee Tour we continue to the Poás Volcano National Park. At the Volcano you'll have time to meander the easy to navigate trails and enjoy the impressive main crater as it spews steam while our naturalist guides teaches you about the different ecosystems and species that reside in the Poas National Park.
Following the Poas Volcano visit we continue on to the famous La Paz Water Fall Gardens. The waterfall gardens are spectacularly landscaped with easy to moderate trails leading you from one exhibit to another, and one majestic waterfall after another. However, waterfalls are not the only attraction here. Inside this Costa Rica natural reserve you will have the opportunity to meet up with some of Costa Rica's famous creatures in their natural habitat. You can even pet or feed them in some cases!
