Cultural and sustainable experience
Flora and fauna observation
Meet your guide at the port and transfer to the farm in Londres de Quepos, about 30 minutes from the town of Quepos. Here you will spend the morning visiting stables and other animal enclosures, touring our organic farm, learning about local flora and fauna and ending with folk dancing and a sampling of traditional Costa Rican food. This fun group activity allows for families and friends to see how a Costa Rican farm is run.
Farm animals include rabbits, goats, sheep, chickens, donkeys, horses, cows and even ponies. During the stroll through our organic garden you will see fruit and vegetables and herbs, many of which will make an appearance in the menu a bit later in the day. The activity, which takes about 4 hours to complete, ends with a joyful example of Costa Rican traditional dances. This is accompanied by a tasty selection of culinary delights, handmade tortillas, “picadillos”, which are minced vegetables accompanied by meat and spices, and grilled meat. Enjoy your treats with a relaxing view of the Naranjito River, which meanders through the property, adding to the delightful experience, combining nature with cultural exchanges in a relaxed atmosphere fit for guests of any age.
