This is how it all started… Travel back in time to see how Costa Rican towns shaped up and how the cultural aspects of these towns and our rural areas influenced the Costa Rican way of life.
In a remote, little village named “Colonia Libertad”, 45 years ago, adventurous pioneers headed into the deep, virgin rainforest and settled down with their families. In Costa Rica, almost every single town started this way, yet only a few of them still keep that ancient lifestyle. It will be like going to a time in the past to see the perfect interaction between rural development and traditions.
You will visit a beautiful ranch in the middle of the rainforest. Once there, you will experience different activities, from an interactive cooking class, to visits to a medicinal plant garden, and organic vegetable and fruit plantations. All of these products will later be used to cook your lunch.
A tractor-pulled cart ride will show you a bit more of their plantations, but the best it’s yet to come… The greetings from the local families, relaxing on their porches or hanging laundry out to dry in the sun, will be a common ingredient and welcome addition to the landscape. You will visit the 50-student elementary school, their catholic church, and their clinic. For a final sampling of rural Costa Rican life, a proud, yet uncomplicated family will open the doors to their home just for you to enjoy an afternoon of snacks, their famous homemade bread, and a cup of freshly-brewed Costa Rican coffee.
