Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

star-5

Coffee'N Jungle Night Tour is a unique, different, instructive and fun tour. It is the perfect combination of Costa Rican coffee culture and the adventure of discovering wildlife in Monteverde. In this tour, visitors will learn a lot about the whole process of coffee, cocoa and the sweet juice of sugarcane. But Coffee'N Jungle is a tour that also deals with nature. That is why part of the tour is dedicated to exploring the forest at night. So we can be spectators of the wonderful concert that is performed jointly by several species of frogs and crickets while we witness the ephemeral works of art painted by fireflies with light brushes. And, with a little luck, we can observe other inhabitants of the forest, such as the lazy patient with two fingers or the elusive Kinkajou.

Tamarindo Snorkel & Sunset Cruise with Lunch
"My fiance and I loved that this tour was a five minute walk from our hotel in Tamarindo. The guides were easy to find and were very welcoming. The group size was perfect for the size of the catamaran. We enjoyed laying on the nets and soaking up the sun while feeling the breeze from the ocean. The guides were very good at making sure everyone had drinks and were enjoying themselves. The Pina colada was better here than anywhere else. There were many places to sit on the boat and a great indoor shade area to escape the sun. Snorkling was a blast and we saw many fish. When we arrived back at the boat from swimming the one of the guides let me know he had people wait for seconds for the delicious BBQ until we had been served our first plate. I thought this was extremely thoughtful. The food was good! We were very lucky to have an amazing sunset and it concluded a very romantic evening for my fiance and I."..."
