Tour Description

On this trip we will visit a Costa Rican coffee plantation and processing plant, plus a traditional pottery town famous for its locally crafted clay pottery.

We will visit the town of Guaitil, the best place to experience the welcoming descendants of the Chorotegas. These indigenous people of Central America once among the Mayans and Aztecs but moved south as a measure of self-preservation.

Famous for handcrafting beautiful clay pottery, the Chorotegas apply the same materials, colors and techniques that have been passed down from their ancestors for hundreds of years.

We will also take you to a beautiful area in our countryside, home to a famous traditional Costa Rican coffee plantation.  There you will learn everything you need to know about the whole process of growing coffee.

This tour will cover the harvesting of the coffee berries, extracting the beans from the fruit and more.  You will learn the selection process, the roasting of the beans and drying the grounds. We will even share the local trade secrets of the Costa Rican coffee plantations.

Finally, you’ll discover the environmentally friendly processes and sustainable manufacturing practices used by the coffee growers here in this part of Costa Rica.

Our January 12 to the 22 stay was our second trip to Villa la Sata. We didn’t think it could get any better but this was a very special time in this extremely special place. For all our experiences here in Guanacaste this Estate cannot be matched. The village of Flamingo provides varied opportunities for dining and entertainment. Whether at Angelina’s, Coco Loco or La Forketta the food was amazing. The in home chef Jean Luc was the BEST! The beauty of the white sand beach of Flamingo is unparalleled. The staff at Villa la Sata was extremely accommodating. There was no better way to escape the cold of Montana. We will return yet again, Michael Snow

It would be tougher to spend a week in Costa Rica in a nicer home than Villa La Sata. Not only is it centrally located to the “hopping” area of the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, it is positioned on the property and Bay perfectly. A view of over 180 degrees of the ocean is breathtaking. The home is beautiful, updated and unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime vacation home. This will go down as the nicest home we have ever spent time in, on vacation.

We stayed at Villa La Sata, in Costa Rica for a few days in February. It is a very special place which is beautifully appointed with detail after detail. I can’t imagine a better location in the world to soak up the sun on its terraces, perched on a cliff overlooking a mile or so of wonderful beach. We had magnificent sunsets every night that were among the best I have ever seen. My wife was in heaven as she cannot miss a sunset.

Staying at Villa La Sata was an amazing experience! The views were immaculate and the villa was very impressive… I loved waking up to the sound and site of the beach each morning. The fact that you can see the water as the front gate opens and from every room is why I would consider this the Gem of Flamingo. I’ve never experienced anything like the sunsets here as well. As a videographer and photographer it was more than just a paradise it was Heaven.
