This tour is a unique experience which provides visitors with a true cultural understanding.
Our philosophy was born from our local Monteverde family who wanted to give clients an exclusive excursion different than conventional tours. We aim to provide our clients with a extraordinary experience by fully immersing them in this vibrant culture. This tour begins with a walk to a hidden Strangler Fig Tree, where there is an option to climb inside of it. Here, we have the chance to meet Capuchin White Face monkeys and Howler monkeys, who are both frequent visitors to the area.
After spending time at the tree, we will go towards the upper part of the mountains, passing the original central town of Monteverde. This is where the Quakers settled in the 1950s and founded the cheese factory as well as the Quaker school. As we continue the walk, there are high chances of seeing more wildlife including sloths, birds, coatis, insects, etc.
We will then catch a ride to an organic coffee farm in the bordering town of San Luis. Once there, the owner of the farm, will give us a tour of his property and present insight on how he manages it. He will talk about the history of San Luis and how he started this organic farm many years ago. After this one-hour coffee tour, we invite you to go inside his home and have a delicious typical Costa Rican lunch prepared by his wife.
After this half day tour, we'll drive back to your hotel where you can kick back and relax.
