More on Costa Rica

After a wonderful trip down the Pacaure River, we spent the next day going on the Cafe Britt coffee tour. The tour took us through the organic coffee farm, the milling process, the roastery, and packaging. The tour included the best meal we had in all of Costa Rica and we got to learn to make espresso's, mocha's, and cappuccino's. Definitely a worth while visit.

After the coffee tour, we started heading towards our first volcano, which we were going to check out the next day. The Poas Volcano was pretty cool. Steam was coming off the emerald lake inside the crater. Also, the nearby lagoon, which has a great view, is well worth the hike. During a clear day, you can see the Caribbean Ocean from the volcano.

After this, we traveled to La Paz Waterfall Gardens. This included a zoo of birds, snakes, butterflies, hummingbirds, frogs, and other animals. Once past the animals you walk down a path till you get to the first of a series of waterfalls. Each waterfall is quite spectacular.

At this point, we were tired and decided to head to our next hotel. This is where the next post will begin.
