After visiting Irazu Volcano (see above) and Cartago we will continue on the way to the Lankester Gardens which is run by the University of Costa as a research center. Charles Lankester designed the gardens in the 1940’s and after his death they were eventually donated to the University of Costa Rica. Today the gardens cover around 11 hectares (27.2 acres) and are home to over 3000 species of plants including orchids and bromeliads. After visiting Lankester we will continue on to the stunningly beautiful Orosi Valley. The valley has the picturesque Reventazon river running though it and the valley sides are full of coffee plantations as the cultivation of coffee is the leading industry. We will stop in the village to see the Costa Rica’s oldest church built in 1743 and is still in use and then stop for lunch at one of the local restaurants.
