The Real Coffee Tour and Oxcart Factory

Get a taste of real Costa Rican life on this unique coffee and culture tour. You'll get to tour a coffee plantation, check out an oxcart factory, and much more. Book your Puntarenas tour today for a novel look at this beautiful country.

Your tour begins the minute you set foot out of the pier. You'll be whisked away down the Pan-American Highway and enjoy some of Central America's best views. Eventually, you'll arrive at the Espíritu Santo plantation and processing plant, where you'll learn all about Costa Rica's tasty coffee. By the end of the coffee tour, you won't be able to look at coffee the same way again.

Afterward, take a scenic road trip toward the settlement known as Sarchi. Here, you'll get to see oxcarts being made. They're much more than just a work vehicle here-they're also an art piece. During your time in this area, you'll have an authentic Costa Rican mountain style lunch.

The final stop on this Puntarenas tour is Grecia, a charming village known for notable architecture, such as a neo-gothic church made entirely of metal. It's a sight to behold just like the other gorgeous buildings in the area. On this tour, prepare to have all your senses excited. This is Costa Rica like you've never seen it before.

Coffee tour was very interesting and informative. Oxcart is not a must. Long waiting time for lunch

Fabulous. Small group of 6. Tour guide was one of the best we have ever experienced. This was my first tour not sponsored by the ship. From now on I will check your site for a tour before considering ship tours.

We were unable to do this excursion due to the rode being wiped out by hurricane Nathan. We did go on another tour with Gio and it was amazing. We saw and held monkeys. Went on a river boat to see crocodiles.
