About this trip

This 6-day small group tour of Costa Rica is designed to make you experience two diverse and non-touristy destinations of this wonderful country. First, you will visit the Dota region and stay in the lovely Tami Lodge. Visit coffee plantations, enjoy beautiful landscapes, meet rural communities and go on a bird-watching excursion in search for the stunning quetzal.

After an incredible journey in a 4WD vehicle through the less travelled roads of Costa Rica, you will arrive to Los Campesinos Lodge, a community-run project in the mountains near the Pacific coast, where you will experience authentic culture, hike in rural ecosystems and taste local food. 

The tour starts in San José on December 15th and finishes in Manuel Antonio beach on December 20th. We can assist you with travel arrangements in these and other destinations across Costa Rica.

This is a small group tour (max. 6 people) with fixed dates (confirmed departure). The price displayed is per person, staying in a double room (one double bed or two single beds). If you are a solo traveller and/or want a single room, please contact us before booking. 

In case you are interested in other destinations and/or dates, we'd be happy to organise a private tailor-made tour for you, simply get in touch. We offer all destinations in Costa Rica.

Dec 15th:
From San José to Dota (-/-/-)

Mid-morning, we will pick you up at your hotel in San José to start a 2.5-hour journey to the beautiful Tami Lodge in the region of Dota. The next 3 nights will be spent deep in the cloud forest surrounded by nature but with access to all your basic needs and amenities. Experience Tami Lodge’s unique luxury tented camp with spectacular views of the Los Santos Region. The lodge has 10 tents distributed onto 6 bungalows, 4 doubles and 2 singles. Every tent has its own private bathroom with hot running water. The showers are unique as they mimic waterfalls flowing over natural rock and the views are spectacular as the windows open up to the cloud forest and the valley. After time for lunch, enjoy a visit to the Green Communities Experimental farm, where we will give you presentation of the process and production of organic coffee. Afterwards we will head to the Coffee Mill to see the complete process surrounded by local employees and farmers. Next, we will visit our organic farm and enjoy a coffee tasting session. Free evening back to the lodge.
