      Family of 3 loved the horseback tour
      We loved our tour of the farm, my daughter especially loved riding the horses, who were very well cared for and easy to ride. The end of the tour at the hacienda with coffee and cake was perfect, the setting is amazing. We only wish we would have booked a stay at the hacienda because it was so nice.

      Highly Recommend!
      We did the horseback riding tour, which was lovely. The Aquiares waterfall was a highlight (bring your swim suit if you want to take a dip!). Our guides were super friendly and shared so much information. The seating at the restaurant afterwards was breathtaking. I wish we could have stayed for lunch!

      All you need to know about coffee
      An amazing tour where you learn a lot about coffee. The guide Andrew is very passionate and enthusiastic. He guided us through the complete process and told us so many thing, you think differently next time you drink coffee. Now coffee tastes so much better then before. Overall a very good experience and worth while to have this experience as part of your vacation to Costa Rica

      Such a great experience
      A big highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The house is beautiful, the grounds are like the garden of Eden. The staff was so unbelievably pleasant and kind that it felt like you were staying with family. We did the 4-hour horseback tour and our guides, Andrew and Christian, were extremely knowledgeable and just an overall great hang. The views were stunning— it felt like a tour of paradise, including the scenic waterfall we detoured. Only regret was not staying long enough and as soon as we got in the car to leave we felt sad to depart. Can’t praise Aquiares enough—will definitely return here for an even longer stay.

      Memorable, authentic and delicious coffee experience at Aquiares Coffee
      The Aquiares coffee tour was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica trip! So neat to visit the oldest and largest coffee estate in the country and to learn about their high quality (Rainforest Alliance certified) process. We loved visiting the local Aquiares community, and the coffee was ah-mazing. Andrew was an awesome tour guide too. He took our favorite picture from the entire trip of us standing in front of the beautiful Tree of Life. Highly recommend Aquiares Coffee tour!

      Immerse yourself in a coffee experience
      What an amazing experience! We had a lovely drive through the mountains to reach Aquaires. We were greeted by Andrew and started with a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, breads and the most delicious passionfruit jam I have tasted. We then met the horses and took off through the coffee plantation. I'm not an avid rider, but the horse was gentle and easy to ride. We stopped to pick coffee beans to get an idea of what the typical worker would have to accomplish to earn a wage. Trust me - this is an experience. We then rode the horses and hiked a little to a beautiful waterfall. After returning to the Casa we had a lovely lunch, followed by a tour of where the coffee is processed. During all this time, Andrew was there to answer any questions that might arise and to share a wealth of knowledge regarding coffee, the plantation and Costa Rica in general. The coffee tour was very informative, starting with the growth of the coffee plants all the way to the final bagging. We were lucky enough to do a cupping session because we wanted to buy green coffee beans in bulk to bring back to our cafe in the states. The rest of the group did a coffee tasting. This was the highlight of our trip and we learned so much. the experience is a memory made with so much to learn and remember. I highly recommend.

      Learnig a lot about the coffee business
      The tour was amazing as Cesar and Andrew explained a lot about the process of coffee from the nusery to the shippment as well as the history of the hacienda and the people that work here. The coffe tasting at the and was very delicous and a great final after two hours. We were in a small group - just two cuples - so thete was plenty of time for questions. We would recommend to do this tour when you are in the area.

      You will be well looked after!
      Traditional snacks and coffee at the Hacienda to start with. We were staying there already so it wasn’t out of the ordinary as we were very well fed every day! Calm and seemingly unflappable horses; beautiful views; lots of lovely photos to take home. As novice riders we felt safe and even somewhat confident! Caesar our tour guide was full of information - but it’s a lot to take in while concentrating on riding 😉 - and Christian, the stable manager, led the way making sure the track was clear. Andrew was learning the ropes of being a tour guide so we were very spoilt for attention. This is more a tour of the whole coffee plantation with information about the growing and harvesting of the bean rather than learning about the bean to cup coffee making process.

      High quality experience.
      It was a wonderful experience. Our guide took us through the whole process, very interesting even for the non coffee lovers. He gladly answered all our questions. The little village of Aquiares and the landscape around the farm is astonishing and couldn’t say enough about the quality of the coffee, simply extraordinary

      Aquiares - The 'must do' coffee experience
      We had a great tour at Aquiares, just outside Turriabla. Ceaser was our most excellent guide. He spoke nearly perfect English and was both interesting and entertaining. He certainly has a thorough grasp of the coffee business. The tour was certainly more than 2 the advertised hours but worth every minute. It was not just about coffee but embraced the development and culture of the Aquiares Community. Most interesting (in a hugely interesting visit) was to see the coffee tasters doing the tasting. Many thanks too to Manuel who was engaging and informative.

      A very special day off of the typical tourist beat
      Cesar and Christen were our horseback ride guides. They took us on a magical tour of the coffee farm along the way sharing the history of coffee and this very special place. We made two extraordinary stops along the way where we appreciated the unique mountain setting and fantastic views. The last time we were on horseback was many years ago. No issues with our guides they were very kind and patient we never felt out of control with these well trained horses. And if that was not enough, we enjoyed a wonderful multi-course luncheon in the historical inn that decades ago provided overnight accommodations for traveling coffee buyers. The lunch was a real treat on an outside veranda overlooking a beautiful garden. Everyone of the staff we encountered made us feel welcome and special. And the coffee at the end of our meal was delicious!!

    My family and I spent an afternoon at Aquiares. We had a wonderful time, thanks to our host, Alfonso and his family. Exquisite food and service. The 100 year old house feels so warm and its surrounding gardens are amazing. I highly recommend Aquiares to spend a day or more with family or friends.
