Orosi Valley and Lankester Gardens

This tour takes place in the lush Orosi Valley, and affords many opportunities for scenic views along the way.

This tour will take you to the Province of Cartago, that was the Capital of Costa Rica until 1823, where you will visit the Basilica of our Lady of the Angels, home of the Patron Saint of Costa Rica and a peregrination site for many believers, many of whom travel from as far as the Province of Guanacaste, a pilgrimage of several hundred kilometers on foot.

Next, after we visit the Basilica we will stop at the Lankester Gardens, a University of Costa Rica Center for investigation that protects more than 800 species of orchids, bromeliads and countless species of other plants.

Then, we will continue to the Valley of Orosi, an area that overflows with unparalleled beauty. We will be able to visit one of the few remaining colonial churches and we will stop to enjoy a scrumptious typical lunch at one of the local restaurants.

The Basilica has large vaulted ceilings and exquisite examples of stained glass windows with attention to detail in terms of design and color, and is a truly a must see.

So book go ahead and book this unique and enjoyable tour.
