Discover the delights of the Costa Rican countryside exploring a traditional farm near La Fortuna. Experience daily life here and indulge in a tasting of typical local products.
La Fortuna Farm Tour
Having been picked up from your hotel, you'll set off towards the tiny village of Agua Azul, where the agroecological farm, or "finca", is located.
Arriving at the finca, you'll be welcomed with a refreshing natural juice of locally grown fruits, which you'll enjoy while your guide introduces you to the farm's principle values. The farmers here work hard to preserve traditional Costa Rican agricultural techniques and customs while ensuring they use natural resources sustainably.
You'll then begin your guided tour of the different parts of the finca. Enjoy the unforgettable opportunity to milk cows: both young and old visitors alike will be able to take part and experience this essential part of farm life.
Discover all there is to know about the products grown and made here: learning about the farm's artisanal liquor distillation process and how sugarcane juice is extracted. And of course, you'll get to enjoy a tasting of the liquor, as well as of chocolate and milk.
Visit a small archaeological ranch, where you'll get to see indigenous artefacts and learn how they were historically used in the production of cocoa.
Finally, for the finishing touch on your comprehensive experience of life on a Costa Rican finca, you'll enjoy a mouth-watering meal of all the foods produced here, including coffee, cheese, tortillas and picadillo, a dish made of ground meat, spices and vegetables.
At the end of a fascinating tour, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
