The Doka Estate Coffee plantation is located in the coffee capital of Costa Rica – Sabanilla, Alajuela. The farm belongs to the Vargas Ruiz family, pioneers of coffee production for more than 70 years. They offer a fascinating tour showing you the entire coffee making process from seed to brewed cup. The tour also includes a visit to their beautiful butterfly and bonsai gardens. The artisan town of Sarchí is renowned for its intricately and colorfully painted oxcarts and extraordinary wood furniture and crafts. Tourists and locals travel to this charming traditional
town to purchase goods and souvenirs. Although the variety of handiwork is far-reaching, including rocking chairs and chests, wooden bowls and boxes, the most well-known is the oxcart, a national symbol for Costa Rica. Our tour includes a visit to the Eloy Alfaro Oxcart Factory, where they still handcraft oxcarts and fabulous wooden crafts.
