Our guides were fantastic! They were very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and invested in portraying the mission of the plantation. It was very fun learning and seeing the different ways coffee is dried, roasted, and sorted, and I enjoyed making chocolate and the traditional sugar-cane sugar.

We are a family of 6 adults and 3 children coming form the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton located in Puntarenas. We have 2 rental cars and would need driving directions and an estimate of time to get there. The tour sounds fantastic. We could come 3 pm March 10 or 11. Next week. Which way should we come? What day would be less crowded? Thank you so much and PURA VIDA. Jane H. Virginia Beach, VA
