Costa Rica’s topography is among the most diverse in the world. Rolling hills, tall mountains, plains, valleys, and riverbeds are just part of the gorgeous landscape that make you think of one word -- paradise.

Your sightseeing drive will start by heading east to Esparza. This town has become one of the most picturesque in the Costa Rica’s Central Pacific region. The central park and its church are symbolic of Costa Rica’s hardworking rural towns.

Local dancerswearing colorful costumes will greet you at the park. Learn about local traditions and there will be handmade souvenirs for sale here.

Your drive continues with some stretches along the Pacific Ocean. You will pass mango and cashew plantations, farming areas and almost certainly some birds along the way. At sea level, admire the sweeping views of green rolling pastureland, with the ocean in the distance. The colorful homes along the way feature large gardens and living fences grown with the most beautiful plants -- the standard décor of Costa Rica’s beautiful countryside.

The final stop is at El Jardin Souvenir, giving you an opportunity to sample delicious fruit and taste a Costa Rican cup of coffee.

Notes:

Wear light clothing. Bring rain gear, hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.
