Near and about 45 minutes from San Jose airport and not far from Alajuela. One of the oldest plantations in CR. You learn the history and process of coffee bean production with great sampling and a really great gift shop. It also hold a large butterfly enclosure. Great 1/2 trip.

We did this tour as part of our holiday package and found it informative and interesting. Never knew how much went into the production of a cup of coffee. Attractively presented tourist venue with clean toilets.

My husband and I took this tour after seeing Poas Volcano. It was the "off-season" so there wasn't any activity, but that meant it was just the two of us on the tour. Coffee is so ubiquitous that you don't realize how fascinating it really is. This place was gorgeous! We got to sample their coffee, which was fantastic. We... More
