This tour is the combination of the Irazu Volcano National Park and the Orosi Lankester Garden tours. We will take the Panamerican Highway South, to start ascending the large “Iztaru”. The winding road travels through fertile lands cultivated with all kinds of vegetables as we observe a lovely panoramic view.
At the top of the volcano you can observe the main craters and on a clear day, both Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen. As we descend to the city of Cartago we will stop at the Virgin of the Angels Basilica – a famous peregrination site for many believers.
After visiting the Basilica we will stop at the Lankester Gardens, a University of Costa Rica Center for investigation that protects more than 800 species of orchids, bromeliads and countless species of other plants. We will continue to the Valley of Orosi where creation overflows in unparallel beauty.
We will be able to visit one of the few remaining colonial churches and we will stop for lunch in one of the local restaurants. During our tour we will be able to observe La Casa Del Soñador, an example of Costa Rican primitive art.
