Traditional Costa Rican Farm Tour – Hacienda el Corso
Tour Price: $130 USD p/p
Hacienda El Corso is a traditional Costa Rican dairy farm with fantastic views of the mountainous countryside below the Poás volcano. Visitors are guided through the 220-hectare hacienda to experience different parts of life on the farm.
We will meet for this tour outside Tico Lingo at 8:00am to travel just 1 hour to Hacienda El Corso. The tour begins with a tractor ride to a marvelous lookout point over Volcán Poás. Here, we will be given an introduction to the volcanoes of Costa Rica. The next stop will be La Lecheria, where we will have the chance to milk a cow and learn about how the milk is transformed into other dairy products on the farm. The tour then continues with a walk through a cloud forest and a visit to the strawberry eld, where there are plenty of delicious strawberries to taste. The experience continues with a visit to the mini farm, which is home to rabbits, pigs, chickens and horses.
Our final stop is at the ‘Mercadito’, where you can taste special cheeses, sausages, and breads that are made on the farm. The tour ends with a typical Costa Rican lunch at the on-farm local restaurant before heading back to Heredia for a planned arrival of roughly 2:00pm.
