Combine art, beauty, and nature on this half-day guided tour, 45 minutes away from Buena Vista. You will visit Grecia and Sarchi, two of the country's most special towns.

A rare sight and a must-see while in Costa Rica. The magic of this tour continues with a visit to the country's artisan town of Sarchi, where the famous oxcarts are built. You will have the opportunity to inspect the fascinating factories and examine how the carts are constructed. Splendidly decorated in various sizes, these oxcarts are treasured for their unique beauty. The carts were formerly used to transport coffee beans over the mountains to the coast, and you won't want to leave Costa Rica without one.
