Savegre Nature & Cultural Journey


The Experience

Savegre, a small and vibrant town tucked into the Talamanca Mountains, one of the largest protected areas of the country, has managed to retain its remote beauty, reflecting the slower rhythm that was dictated by the old-school way of life in Costa Rica. The town sits along the Savegre River, which claims to be the cleanest in all of Central America. This experience showcases both the natural resources and rich culture of this smal l town and offers you a chance to share in the daily life of the locals and experience “costarriquenismo” - an authentic expression of the culture of the past, where microsourcing of natural resources sat at the heart of the local identity. Begin with a light breakfast, before setting out for a walking tour of the surrounding gardens. The next part of your experience will entail either a moderate hike culminating in a beautiful waterfall, or a birdwatching tour. You’ll then return for a lunch feast, which features authentic Costa Rican dishes shared throughout generations. Conclude lunch with a “wine “tasting, showcasing the revolutionary entrepreneurship of a local family, who uses hibiscus flowers, rather than grapes, to obtain this unique local take on a traditional beverage. Finally, head to a local coffee farm of a local family for a look into artisanal coffee production. Here, you’ll have the chance to learn about the challenges and opportunities this family has faced in order to pursue a dream of producing the best quality product, while simultaneously respecting ancestral processes of cultivating, harvesting and roasting.
