Coffee plantation was an unexpected highlight. Fabulous facility and an exceptionally well informed and interesting explanation of the whole process by our guide Donal. Visit to Poas was a hair raising drive, but always felt safe with a clearly experienced driver. Cloud cover over the actual Poas crater was a slight dissapointment, but just walking up in the cloud forest was memorable and serene. La Paz is an otherworldly beautiful garden and rainforest. The animals are rescued wildlife, interesting, although caged. But we certainly never expected to see monkeys or toucans or jaguars in the wild, and this was a reasonably humane lush garden setting. The living jungle rainforest pathway and waterfalls were, simply, sublime.
