Adventure Inn is the only hotel or tour company to offer this wonderful guided close-up Costa Rican tour. You won't see any tourists, or tourist advertising, or tourist clip joints. It is designed for those who would enjoy an impromptu look at the real Costa Rica, the heart and soul of Costa Rica, away from the clutter and noise of the beaches and urban life. Peer deep into the real lives of Costa Rica mountain people, an amazing route that goes around the mountains backing Escazu and Santa Ana. Throughout the journey enjoy several glimpses of the dozen wind turbines that help generate the 100% renewable electric energy that Costa Rica proudly enjoys and accomplishes. Drive around and over the scenic green patch-work mountains, along jungle laden ridges, into deep green valleys, past lookout points that on a clear day allow you to see the distant Pacific Ocean forty miles away. Visit small unspoiled country villages with their general stores and dogs sleeping on the road, rural homesteads and farms with their all-too-easy-to-grow flower gardens. See the coffee plantations that helped finance much of Costa Rica's earliest infrastructure. Your bilingual guide keeps you informed as you travel along, happy to answer any questions, and allowing you to stop along the way at any of the thousand photo opportunities that will present themselves. Enjoy a cold refreshment and bocas in a Costa Rican mountain pub. Towards the end of the tour, you will cross a mountain pass and be treated to an excellent typico Costa Rican dinner from an amazing lookout restaurant. Stretched out far below are the twinkling lights of the bustling City of San Jose. Experience Costa Rica like a Tico, not a tourist. Bring your sun glasses and camera. Beer and other refreshments will be made available upon request.
