Visit with us an area of Costa Rica that seems to have frozen in time. Not only because of the untouched nature we will witness during our boat trip but for the centennial town of Guaitil where you will learn about the heritage of pottery making that dates back to the pre-colonial era.
Our tour begins at the Palo Verde National Park. A bird sanctuary that is recognized as the most important area in all of Central America for bird concentration. It is said that the birds observed both aquatic and terrestrial add more than 275 species. But the wildlife goes beyond the colorful winged friends, you will be able to spot Iguanas, Crocodiles, monkeys and Bats.
After a full immersion in nature, we will head to the picturesque town of Ortega where a nice, enthusiastic and hard-working lady called Doña Katia will be welcoming us in her own home with the lunch served. Doña Katia will also share with us her secrets on how to prepare the best corn tortillas!
The town of Guaitil will be our next stop. A place in which the ancient tradition of the Chorotegas, a local indigenous tribe, of how to craft vessels is preserved. No matter where you look, all the houses and their settlers take pride in this artistic heritage, being the main and almost the only activity of the town. A great experience you will never forget!
