Join us on this 8-hour tour to make the most of your stay in Costa Rica. We will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel in San Jose, Alajuela or Heredia and drive you to a wildlife refuge close to San Jose. Take a stroll inside the refuge's beautiful botanical gardens and see more than 125 species of animals (mammals and reptiles) as well as birds that have been rescued.

The large enclosures in the refuge are designed to offer more space and comfort to these animals. Some of the animals and birds that you can see in the refuge include toucans, limpets, turtles, felines, cocobriles, monkeys and sloths.

This refuge plays an important role in terms of environmental education and protection of endangered species. Learn more about the species that are key to Costa Rica's biodiversity as well as their function in the ecosystem.

Time for something sweet next. Travel to a cocoa plantation and enjoy an incredible, 90-minute chocolate tour. Learn more about the history behind the arrival of cocoa beans in the country as well as about the process involved in producing chocolates, starting from cultivation to harvesting, fermentation, drying, baking, grinding and, finally, the production process.

We will drive you back to the accommodation after the tour is over.
