Costa Rica: Coffee, parrots and hotels

Now that we had decided to travel to Costa Rica, it was time to work out where we were going to stay. Since this was our Coffee & Parrots Tour, I started off by looking up the coffee plantations that offered public tours, and locating them in Google Earth. Next, I searched the Internet for information about Costa Rican parrot sanctuaries and breeding programs, and locations where parrots were often seen in the wild.
