Talamanca Indigenous Village Tour

Puerto Viejo de Limon

On this intimate cultural tour you will arrive at the Bribri reserve and be greeted by Dr. Bribri or Awa, the shaman for the Volio, Watsi and Santa Fe indigenous communities. He will walk the tour through the customs and history of his family and the indigenous overall. The Awa will take the tour to a replica of one of the most sacred places in the country for the Bribri, the High Talamanca. These sacred mount is a replica of where they believed god created humans. Dr. Bribri will explain in great detail and expert storytelling how the creation took place.

On the way back you will start to see the daily activities that fill the indigenous lives. You will pass by the stones used to grind corn, some of the crafts and art work made by the locals, and the small house where five generations of Bribri live under one roof. You will experience direct contact with this town and their way of life, something extremely unique and special for a cultural tour. You will also get a special traditional lunch

Finally, no Costa Rican tour is complete without being able to see, taste and help produce Costa Rica’s most famous product, Chocolate! You are given the opportunity to grind your own and taste many different types as they walk you through the secrets of the ancient process. After a refreshing dip in one of the most spectacular waterfalls you will make your way back to the hotel. The tour is a full day lasting almost eight hours.
