Last day in Monteverde we toured a locally owned coffee and sugar cane farm, which we got to sample both. It was a very informative and interactive 2 hour tour. We also learned a little bit about banana plants, which were originally from Africa and CR’s #1 export product.
In the afternoon, we checked out the butterfly (and insect) garden that has volunteers conducting the educational tours. This was one of the volunteer programs I looked into doing, but they require two months commitment. Click here for pix.
