Day 1 - San Jose: INBioparque & Cafe Britt

The Gran Hotel Costa Rica is the hotel that we stayed at today. This hotel is a good place to stay in San Jose, Costa Rica. One of Costa Rica's main exports is coffee. Cafe Britt is a coffee plantation that we visited in the morning. While at Cafe Britt, our tour was very good because they didn't just talk to us about the plantation, they acted out the tour in a very interesting way. Later in the afternoon we went to a biodiversity institute called INBioparque. The institute has a very well kept ecotourism that has a very nice setup. It is a good place to learn about the many different types of animals and plant life that Costa Rica has to offer. For the rest of the day we got to walk the streets of San Jose and experience how the local people shop and do their business with others. This was the our group's first full day in Costs Rica.
