“Very informative”

We learned a lot and it was also very fun, I won't buy coffee the same way going forward. In addition of seeing the coffee, you also have the opportunity to "press" some sugar canes and some cacao beans.
The gift shop at the end where they the coffee is good as well with reasonable prices.

The San Luis coffee tour was a very informative and fun experience. It was a private tour for my boyfriend and I, given by the owner of the farm Victor with the help of a friendly translator as we didn't speak Spanish. We not only learned how the coffee is made today, but also the original processes and got to roast some of our own coffee beans and keep them as a souvenir! We also learned about the several different types of coffee plants as well as other fruits growing at the farm. We also got transportation to and from our hotel which was helpful with the less than ideal roads. Highly recommend this family-run, authentic experience!

This was so fun! Learned about cocoa, coffee, and sugar cane; sampled each along the way. The tour guide was wonderful; I can still hear him! Ended the tour in a beautiful tasting room with a beautiful view! Definitely worth the entrance fee and a great way to spend a couple of hours!

http://www.victorsfarm.com/tours We went and visit café San Luis, or also known as Victor's farm. We really enjoyed it. Great plantation, café, banana, mango, etc. We roasted our own coffee beans. We brought them back with us and we will be able to enjoy them later when we are back home!
