Afterwards, we will visit thelocal one-room schoolhouse of San Jorge to interact with the children.(Activity on school days only). We will enjoy a delicious snack of fresh fruit to recharge our energy before continuing our adventure.

We will explore the property and visit the pepper, vanilla, yucca, banana, corn and other traditional plantations of the region. Afterwards, we will enjoy a fantastic lunch with farm-fresh ingredients prepared on a wood-burning stove for the authentic flavor of Costa Rica, before returning to your hotel in La Fortuna in the afternoon.
