Meet your English-speaking excursion guide by your Puntarenas cruise pier and head on board your air-conditioned transport. Enjoy short stops for breathtaking scenic photo opportunities and visit a local Butterfly Farm.

Throughout your cruise excursion, your knowledgeable and entertaining guide will narrate fascinating information and anecdotes to you and answer any questions you may have. 

Take a 90-minute journey to the coffee plantation, Espiritu Santo in the area of Naranjo. Espiritu Santo is located in an area surrounded by 247 hectares of high-quality coffee plantations. Enjoy participating in this step-by-step process where you will also discover the secrets of the coffee production trade. Beginning from the beans fresh from the plantation to the final brewing, watch how Costa Rica`s best coffee is made. And yes, enjoy a taste!

Visit the small town of Esparza and its Catholic Church located just off the main town plaza. With its domed clock tower and neoclassical facade, it was constructed during the Spanish Colonial period. Your guide will give you more information on the history of this church, known as one of the most impressive in the country.

Explore the nearby town of Sarchi. Dotted with quaint shops and charming stands, enjoy strolling past vibrantly colored buildings and local sands selling handicrafts. From furniture including rocking chairs and chests, dressers and desks, masks and jewelry, the most well-known is the oxcart

The famous Joaquin Chaverri Oxcart Factory, built in 1902, manufactures these unique items still today. Some say the specially decorated oxcarts have become almost a national symbol for Costa Rica. Once the main transportation mode for coffee beans, they are now featured in parades and religious celebrations. The entrance fee to the factory is included in the excursion price. Enjoy a delicious lunch known as "casado" consisting of rice, beans, green salad, fried plantain, and a choice of beef, chicken, pork, or fish.

Your cruise shore excursion guide and transportation will then return you to your Puntarenas Costa Rica cruise ship pier at the conclusion of the excursion.

Being a coffee lover myself I personally loved every aspect of this excursion. The drive was going to be the boring part I thought but it was very smooth and the staff was very informative. .The talk at the plantation and the process of making the coffee was the highlight of this tour

Very cultural and entertaining excursion. The drive through the countryside was smooth and interesting. Top on our liked-it list: the Butterfly Farm, the town of Sarchi and the visit to Espiritu Santo Coffee Plantation. Everything was great and we think this was the best way to see Puntarenas.
