Let's shoot some nice pictures and live the local culture, language and food in historic Barva, with some of the oldest surviving colonial architecture in the country.

We’ll visit the town center and its colonial houses to know what is behind the walls and how it shaped this village. We’ll tour around the picturesque streets to get into little-known cultural gems that span from a little cafes and a secret garden to a fruit market and a cultural heritage museum.

Let's experience Barva, its characters and places. You are invited to enjoy olden time gossip and modern life's unexpected treats in this historic village.

PLEASE READ ATTENTIVELY:
++Starting time is 3.00pm.
++Meeting point is the Fortin (little fort) at Heredia's Central Park, just 7 miles from San José or 6 miles from the airport (Uber is a quick and cheap way to get here). The tour price does not provide for pickup from other places.
++Though I take you through a Roman Catholic Church, religion is not a matter we discuss.
++It is always helpful to do some research before coming so you could know better what to expect. Cultures are different in many ways (personal space, traffic, infrastructure, communication styles, etc) and that is the awesome part of traveling. Enjoy it!
++Please also read "Guests requirements" section.

Her skal du være

We’ll be in the historical centre of Bárvak, the nowadays Village of Barva, to follow the hints of the Spanish colony.

We’ll visit a hidden garden, some picturesque restored houses, the municipal palace, the sculpture gardens, a typical fonda offering fresh dripped coffee and some other interesting scenes of the olden times like an old catholic temple (no religion chat).

We will also see a cultural hacienda and its coffee plantation.

Incredible town, incredible man. First time Airbnb experience and it is exactly what I wanted. Private tour, customizable, ask all the questions you want, stop for all the ice cream you want. Jeff helps you understand the culture but he is doubly as interested in showing a good time and keeping the vibes up. It was 2 20’s girls on the experience and he was like the hot uncle guiding us around. Thanks Jeff

Jeff is a very knowledgable individual! He was engaging and friendly. Even though I only interacted with Jeff for a short time, he made me feel like I was a lifelong friend of his. Heredia as a city is charming, and there are so many wonderful places to experience in Heredia!

Jeff is like a friend. He is very experienced with history of Heredia, the architecture, and the local events. Jeff took us on a journey as a local: we went to local coffee shops, local markets, and explored local history and culture. We fully enjoyed spending time with Jeff!

Jeff is extremely knowledgeable about architecture, local food, culture, hot spots, and seriously anything else you’d want to know! HIGHLY recommend if you are only visiting Heredia or if you just moved here!

We were a bit confused where to meet as our google maps took us directly to the middle of the city council near the park. We asked employees of the council and they directed us to Alfredo's house however after re-reading Jeff's directions to meet at the steps we did just that. Met at the steps of El Fortin-the city council. It was very informative, Jeff did an amazing job taking us through out the city and giving us a small history, art and fruit lesson. We drove and parked on the street nearby but you have to pay and we didn't know how to pay as there were no parking meters like other areas of San Jose. Jeff kindly got us parking. About 320 colones per half hr. The amazing fruit options as we walked thru Central market topped it off. Thank you for the great experience!
