    All the iconic experiences of Costa Rica come together on this eco-adventure: visiting Tortuguero National Park, seeing Arenal Volcano and walking through the treetops at Monteverde Cloud Forest.You'll enjoy Insider moments like… meeting master chocolatiers Julio and George at their workshop in San Isidro de Heredia to see how they create their gourmet chocolate. In search of the finest techniques and cacao, they spent years training at L'Ecole Chocolat in Canada and L'Ecole du Gran Chocolate in France searching for a single organic source, before finding it on Costa Rica's Caribbean slopes. At Monteverde, meet a native Quaker who shares historic photos and stories of old town.
