I was in the area for an event and a colleague recommended this tour. I was not disappointed. If you enjoy a bit of history or just want to be taken back in time you should check this out. I learned about not just about the family that established this plantation, but also marveled to how this place was restored... More

A bit difficult to get to but worth it. We took the English speaking tour and loved the 1.5 hr walking tour. Our guide was knowledgable- fun- interesting.

Yes, if you enjoy historical places, this is a great tour of an historical coffee plantation. But, there is lots more to learn about the forest, plants, trees, etc. and experience the sound of the rushing water, the falls, etc. while touring the trial. Our guide was very passionate about the preservation of the land and heritage of the people... More

Take the tour! They have them in English (and Spanish). The tour is about 1.5hr and you get to see the inside of the summer home, walk through woods and check out the canal, and watch the machines work. It was really informative and interesting. Bring some water in case you are thirsty. Wear comfortable shoes as you walk a... More

In Hacienda Buena Vista you will experience the coffee industry of the 18th Century In my opinion is one of the must to see places in the Island

We booked reservations for the Hacienda tour, then made the long drive from Luquillo, where we live. When we first got there, the visit got off to a less than stellar start. Our tour time was 3:30 pm, and we were told to be there by 3:00 pm. Being our first time there and not wanting to be late, it... More

It is a beautiful place and if to know a little of history of the island it is worth the visit. No stroller so baby carriers are the best thing you can do if you are carrying babies

We rented a car for the day and drove from San Juan to Ponce. Hacienda Buena Vista was a side trip arranged by our hotel concierge. This was a wonderful surprise, the drive up the mountainside gave a great representation of Puerto Rican life. The plantation itself is a beautifully restored historic site. Ray, our guide was passionate about the... More

Wonderful combination of nature (including several waterfalls and a walk through the dense tropical mountain countryside) and history. Loved this trip! Diana was a fantastic guide who shared her love of the land and deep knowledge with our group.

Great place to see more than coffee. Recommend taking the tour (1:30p only time in English). The family history coming from Venezuela started with a variety of crops, his son produced corn meal and grandson started coffee plantation.
