Close to their house we will find the “pulperóa” de Sonafluca, the local rural grocery store, where the participants can buy soft drinks or snacks, if they wish so, and interact with the owner and local clients.

At Sonafluca’s Primary Schoo, the children will present us a selection of local folk dances and information about the educational system in Costa Rica. We can have a very nice interaction with the children.

Finally, about 1:30 pm we will arrive to a site full of history, culture, and traditions:

LaCasona Río Fortuna, where you will be told about some aspects of its 100 years history, the surroundings, and its inhabitants. Here, surrounded by a natural ambiance and the majestic view of La Fortuna River and the Arenal Volcano, we’ll be delighted with a traditional lunch prepared at the house, before the ride to the hotels.
