Curious about the life and times of Costa Rica's most famous yellow fruit? The company, known as Dole in North America, has two-hour Banana Tours to guide you through the process from plantation to processing to packing. Visits are best arranged through several San José travel agencies, who will transport you to the site. Options include a longer tour at a plantation here in Sarapiquí or a shorter tour south of the Caribbean port of Limón, which is primarily geared toward cruise-ship passengers.
