San Jose Day Tour: Doka, Grecia and Sarchi
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Sarchi, Alajuela
The Doka-Grecia and Sarchi tour is a relaxing yet very enjoyable tour.
The tour begins with a wonderful drive through some of the largest coffee and sugar cane plantations (Doka) in Costa Rica.
Then we will arrive in Grecia, and we will see the famous metal church. The church that has a rare architecture, with high ceilings, ornate stained glass windows, and classical lines.
Next we will move on to the arts & crafts factories of Sarchi known for their skilled labor and talented artistry; albeit and the famous ox carts that are built there. And, if you are fortunate enough, you will see an ox cart that is over two stories high. To that end, the behemoth ox cart is registered in the Guinness book of world records as being the largest ox cart in the world.
These ox carts are ornately decorated and bursting with intense colors, such as oranges and reds, and come in various sizes, and are treasured worldwide for their unique beauty. That said, you will not want to leave Costa Rica without one. Albeit, I would not recommend you attempt to lug the two story ox cart home.
To end a beautiful time spent, a delectable typical lunch will be served.
So feel free to call to learn more about this relaxing and enjoyable tour.
