As you descend to the city of Cartago a stop will be made at the Virgin of the Angels Basilica, that according to religious custom, is a peregrination site for many believers. After visiting the Basilica you will stop at Lankester Gardens, a University of Costa Rica Center for investigation that protects more than 800 species of orchids, bromeliads and countless species of other plants. You will continue to the Valley of Orosi where creation overflows in unparallel beauty and to one of the few remaining colonial churches.
