The tour begins at 8:00 a.m. when we leave La Fortuna town, during the tour we will learn about the relationship and interaction of the inhabitants with the Arenal Volcano, its effects on land prices, the traditional way of living, agriculture, cattle breeding and its history, the living fences, and much more.
Once at La Casona we will make a visit to the Trapiche, then a “tractor” trip to Sonafluca town, here at the local rural grocery store the participants can buy soft drinks or snacks, if they wish so, and interact with the owner and local clients. At Sonafluca’s Primary School, the children will present us a selection of local folk dances and information about the educational system in Costa Rica. We can have a very nice interaction with the children. Part of the revenue of this tour is donated to the Primary School and the Community Development Committee of Sonafluca as part of the sustainable tourism project of Casona Rio Fortuna.
