    We can’t say enough good things about our visit of the farm. Huberth was an amazing tour guide and walked us through the property- we learned so much about the vegetation and saw a lot of animals including a very cute sloth. Another highlight was making sugar cane juice with herbs from the garden and eating fruit from the cacao tree - we have been looking at the pictures we took multiple times and are so glad we found this gem. Bless Huberth senior and his family!

    WOW what an amazing experience we had for only $49/each! Our guide Hainir was absolutely fantastic! He was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about a wide array of plants- including their medicinal uses- growing on the farm in addiction to involving us in pressing sugar cane for juice and making drip coffee after dinner for us before our eyes while describing the process. I wrote down at least ten different plants I learned about on the tour ranging from a stevia bush and peppermint plant to mimosa, bibida fruit, mimbro fruit, and more! For a nature junkie, I saw and experienced things I’d never even heard of on this tour!

    What’s more, we got to taste many of these plants as we went or rub them on our skin such as the citronella and lemongrass!

    Before the farm tour, we chopped vegetables for our salad and blended vegetables like chayote and carrots with herbs like culandro (not cilantro- never tried this before either!) and garlic to make one of the most delicious natural salad dressings I’ve ever tasted. We also made corn tortillas on a hot stove from scratch after mixing and patting them out ourselves! We tasted those with queso cheese immediately which was a fantastic snack. After the tour, there was a buffet waiting for us in addition to our salad and dressing which included a savory papaya hash, gallopinto, juicy chicken dish, and super flavorful beef dish. We were even brought dessert in the form of a fried tortilla covered in delicious molasses.

    I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. The delightfully friendly woman who helped us cook/prepare food and Hainir were above and beyond in service and expertise. Must try!!!

    We spent a week in the La Fortuna area for our anniversary. Our travel agent recommended this little gem to us and it did not disappoint - it is one of the top things that we did on the trip! The farm has been under new management in the past year or so, and the experience has been totally revamped so that it is a hands-on living farm experience. We fed animals, we washed pigs, we tasted fresh herbs from the garden, pressed sugar cane, and even tied oxen to their yokes. It was awesome. At the end of the tour, we had a tortilla-making class and then ate a delicious lunch. I highly recommend a visit to the farm!!!!

    This is a great place to visit if you want to experience something different from the Adventure Tour experiences. It was a quiet little place off the beaten path. Mario and his father were very nice and easy to talk to about their lives on the farm. You need to plan to start early since they milk the cows in the morning. We spent an hour or so visiting their small farm. The farm is a very beautiful and peaceful experience. Then we did the short hike to El Canto Waterfall. It was very beautiful and the hike wasn’t too lengthy or difficult, but it is quite steep and was slippery when we went because of the rain. Afterwards they prepared lunch for us and we ate in their home. A nice local meal with rice, potatoes, beans, fruit, vegetables, avocados, and fresh juice. It was a great price for the experience!
