Check out the city’s incredible French colonial architecture that’s among the most well-preserved in the region, and see cultural icons like a Khmer-style temple.

Explore the history of Brisbane through the lens of crime and vice, from Captain Logan’s punishing treadmill to the corruption of the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

You’ll explore the remains of the harshest penal outpost in Australia and see where the public gallows and women’s prison stood.

Our team of historians and archaeologists will bring to life stories of floggings, murders, riots, and good old-fashioned depravity that simmer beneath Brisbane’s sleepy backwater image.

City: Brisbane

All the way to Alajuela

Escape San Jose for the day and head to nearby Alajuela, a smaller city but with big things to see.

You’ll get to experience a slice of local life, from hitting up a bakery for freshly baked bread to sipping a freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee. You’ll wander through the city’s historical streets, hearing the stories of its multicultural families and how Alajuela’s neighbourhoods have changed over the years.

From there, you’ll head up to the cloud forest of Poás Volcano National Park, home to the explosive fumaroles of the largest active volcano crater in the world, and then take a gentle hike to beautiful Botos Lagoon to learn about the different ecosystems of Costa Rica.
