Back home in Costa Rica! Which is kind of nice to come back to our place, daily routine and just settle for a while before heading out to our next adventure.
Last weekend, on Father’s Day, we went to a Farm Tour called Corso Lechería Tour. This tour is in Poasito, a small town in the province of Alajuela (just an hour away from San José, the Capital). This place is actually near an active volcano named Poás, which currently has a restricted access as a precaution because of the volcanic activity in the last months. Normally, the weather up there is rainy and cold, but luckily we had a beautiful sunny morning, and we were able to do all the tour activities as planned.
Olivia was fascinated with all the animals. She has lots of books about farm animals, and we usually talk to her about the farm animals, with sounds and pictures. But, seeing them in real life was just amazing. We saw hens, calves, cows, rabbits, pigs, and dogs.
We went to a dairy farm, saw calves, cows, and we were even able to milk them.
Olivia was especially attached to Richard that day; I think she knew that something was happening that day and that it was about her daddy! She just wanted to be around him and do everything with him, it was so sweet, and I’m pretty sure that was the most special gift for Richard.
Such a FUN day!!
This is a guided tour which takes about 2 hours, and you go on and off on a truck along the farm. We walked by a path full of wood bridges in a small rainy forest, visited a greenhouse full of strawberries growing, ate lots of artisan cheeses, berries, and local bread.
We all had a blast this day and mostly because it was a special occasion to celebrate as a family. We made sure to pamper daddy from beginning to end with little surprises; hugs and kisses, and of course, Olivia was my partner in crime!
If you are ever in Costa Rica, and you’re visiting with kiddos, this is a great local farm getaway. I would recommend getting there early; we booked our tour in advance at 9:30 am on a Sunday, and it wasn’t too crowded, but by the time we were finishing it was 11:30 am the place was packed with families. I think they might be able to give you all the feedback you need before booking here.
