This working coffee plantation doubles as a luxurious inn tucked into the central valley mountain highlands of Costa Rica with splendid views of the volcanoes above. Located only a short distance from the San Jose International Airport, it has long offered travelers a refreshing start to their Costa Rican vacation.

Day 2

Located at a perfect elevation for coffee growing and a world away from the hustle and bustle of San Jose, Finca Rosa Blanca offers an in-depth tour of their coffee farm, the processing plant as well as the roasting house. Enthusiastic guides will share their extensive knowledge on how organic coffee is grown, cared-for, harvested, processed and roasted in order to produce some of the world's best coffee beans. You will learn about Costa Rican Coffee history and you will become skilled at discerning the fine quality of the freshly roasted Finca Rosa Blanca coffee at a "catacion" or cupping session.

Hiking the lush tree-shaded coffee fields, you will discover how coffee is grown and harvested. You will also learn more about the benefits of organic coffee farming on both the environment and local communities.

Following the coffee farm experience, your driver will pick you up to take you on a scenic drive to Arenal. The journey is a two and a half hour scenic drive with vast hills and deep valleys to captivate your attention along the way.

Day 3
Arenal

Your day will begin with an adventure through the treetops of the dense, Costa Rican rainforest. You will board the slow-paced Sky Tram gondolas and soar smoothly through the rainforest, gazing upon endless views during your mountainous ascent. Accompanied by a bilingual guide, you will be able to stop the tram at any point, a feature that allows for magnificent, one-of-a-kind photographs to be captured and tropical birds to be spotted. Once you have arrived on the observation deck, you will have the chance to return to the ground below by riding down on a circuit of zip lines stretching across canyons and between treetops. The tour includes eight cross-sectional cables that together have a total length of 1.7 miles, with distances from 100 to 2460 feet, and with a maximum height of 660 feet, thereby exceeding the treetops and providing a panoramic view of the Arenal Volcano and lake.

Later that afternoon, enjoy hiking through the rainforest at the base of the active Arenal Volcano. This park is filled with wildlife including monkeys, toucans, coati and a large variety of bird species. Your guide will help you spot wildlife and give you a detailed history of the active volcano. After the hike, you will head to a lava view point to see the active lava flows. Here, you will be served delicious ice cold drinks.
