Overview

Make the most of your Costa Rica experience by exploring the countryside during the Made in Costa Rica Tour: A Day Trip from San José!

With your Made in Costa Rica Tour: A Day Trip from San José tickets, you’ll leave the noises of the city behind. Visit quaint, charming towns like Barva, Grecia, and Sarchi, while uncovering some lesser-known Costa Rica attractions. Then, reconnect with nature by hiking through the lush forests during your San José vacation. Stop at a butterfly farm, see beautiful waterfalls, and encounter many other tropical animals in the tropical rainforest. It’s what to do in San José if you like to get off the well-beaten tourist path.

Meet your friendly, local guide in Spain Park and make your way to the beautiful town of Barva. Admire the charms of this colonial town before heading out into the fertile Central Valley. Once you’ve returned from your forest hike, you’ll stop at a 100-year-old coffee plantation for a delicious lunch and a cup of joe. Then, check out Grecia, one of the cleanest towns in Central America, and do a little shopping in the marketplace. Finally, you’ll visit the country’s oldest oxcart factory in Sarchi prior to one final shopping trip in the city center. It’s one of the authentic things to do in San José if you want to see how the locals actually live.
