We believe that Costa Rican culture is something found not in museums, but in the campo. It is captured by the way everyday people live their lives. To learn about it, you need to get away from the big tourist destinations, and to experience it you need to step into someone else’s shoes.

Your Serendipity guide will act as your walking encyclopedia about Costa Rica culture. He will help you select the best food and explain the pilgrimage of the Dia de La Virgen de Los Angeles. He will also seek out local flavor, by finding local fiestas so you can watch horses dance at a tope or fight a bull the tico way or a learn to dance salsa to a local band.

Many farmers still use oxen to plow their fields and horses are still a primary mode of transportation in Costa Rica for campasinos.
