Family Activities:

Freddo Aventura Rural


Located in the Alajuela Province about 50 minutes from San Jose, this dairy and strawberry farm is near Poas Volcano. Kids will love the guided two-hour tour where they can milk adult cows and feed absolutely adorable baby cows from a bottle.

Then take a tractor ride through the cloud forest where you will learn more about the 400-plus cows that are milked twice each day at the farm and spot several of them as you drive along the lush rolling green hills. Walk through a forest trail and observe all the flora and fauna and then end at the strawberry fields, where you can sample some of the sweetest strawberries you may ever taste. Fun Fact: Did you know strawberries naturally clean your teeth?

Back at the lodge, you can see how the third generation dairy farming family makes cheese and visitors can sample that as well. A guided horseback riding which includes samplings of cheese and strawberries is also available. These tours will surprisingly exceed expectations with its beautiful vistas, delicious cheese and strawberry samplings, and hands-on farming fun.

Open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with three guided tours taking place at 9 and 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day

Age Requirements
All ages are welcome the tours but children 12 and older are only permitted on the horseback riding tours. Children under 3 years old are free to enter.
