Finca Monte Claro was beyond fabulous. We so enjoyed our stay in the Mezzanine that we hope to be able to return some day. This isn't your average tourist experience which makes it all the better. The farm is a real working farm, growing many, many acres of coffee and sugar cane and with ambitious and admirable plans to transition more and more to organic. Cristian's tour of the farm by horseback was amazing. We learned so much about coffee cultivation and bought a few bags to bring home. Also, ask about the goat cheese! Wow! That was an added bonus like no other. This place is inspiring and Marie and Cristian were wonderful hosts.
