Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

Coffee and Jungle Night Tour

star-5
Coffee'N Jungle Night Tour is a unique, different, instructive and fun tour. It is the perfect combination of Costa Rican coffee culture and the adventure of discovering wildlife in Monteverde. In this tour, visitors will learn a lot about the whole process of coffee, cocoa and the sweet juice of sugarcane. But Coffee'N Jungle is a tour that also deals with nature. That is why part of the tour is dedicated to exploring the forest at night. So we can be spectators of the wonderful concert that is performed jointly by several species of frogs and crickets while we witness the ephemeral works of art painted by fireflies with light brushes. And, with a little luck, we can observe other inhabitants of the forest, such as the lazy patient with two fingers or the elusive Kinkajou.

Ballet Class -- all levels welcome! (Kids, teens, or adults)

My passion for dance began at 5 years old, when I fell in love with ballet. Since then, it has remained an essential part of my life -- for nearly 3 decades! Though I no longer perform regularly, I remain dedicated to my own practice of ballet, and am enthusiastic about passing on my knowledge for new students in the hopes it will spark a passion for creativity through movement, while cultivating a sense of personal dedication and self-discipline in my students.
