  • The Finca Cántaros biological Park is a site that everyone should visit. Archaeological site which gives us a broader view of the indigenous culture that inhabited the area. Excellent views of San Vito de Coto Brus. Your super friendly hostess.

  • The gardens are fairly compact and don't take too long to walk around. However, they are beautiful and the range of plants is stunning.  more »
