I went here with a tour group, and I have to agree that the "show" was very corny and simple in nature, would appeal more to children. And this is a "coffee" experience....go figure. I endured it....after the comedy show, you go into the gift shop [no surprise here] You get to sample a few coffees, and if you're lucky,... More

Not only will you be able to see where coffee (coffee beans) come from, you'll learn how coffee is made as well as get a better understanding for the cultural aspect of what coffee and the industry surrounding it means for a country like Costa Rica.

We were a group of 6 and visited yesterday. Guides Carmen and Tina were well prepared and knowledgeable. We all learned about growing coffee and enjoyed the experience. It could have been improved perhaps with a cup of coffee at the end!

San Jose looked like a good place to start and stop our Costa Rican honeymoon and for the most part it was. Since we saw the coffee tour seemed to have a good review and we are both big coffee fans we decided to even pay the extra couple of bucks for the coffee lovers tour.

This 45 minute tour was very informational, a bit corny and they provided a secure place for our cars during the tour. It was, however a bit pricy at $22 per person. A $5-$10 charge would have been much more appropriate for what you get. The tour ends with a small sampling of about 6 coffees and several chocolates in... More

This tour is more of a comedy show than a tour of a coffee farm. The comedy was not very funny and the lunch was mediocre at best. Save your time and $$$.

This tour taught me more abotu the coffee bean and plant then I ever thought I could remeber in an hour. The guides were very entertaining; poking fun at one another, being goofy, involving the group. The setting was beautiful as well. The place was clean, seemed well organized, and looked/felt inviting. However, watching the videos in the screening became... More

Two guides played off each other that made for a pleasant experience. Depending upon the season, the experience will be different. Based upon the amount of labour needed in the process, coffee is an inexpensive beverage. Be sure to add the lunch. Great price and even better food.
