It was an informative and fun morning! Coffee, sugar & chocolate, let's be honest, it's hard to go wrong. I enjoyed how they showed us the intricacies of making each product and I liked that we got to try our hand at each. You'll have fun & learn & eat. A good deal!

We learnt so much about coffee, sugar cane and cocoa production - tasting along the way. Demonstrations of the old production ways and the modern machinery. The guide was great, he also acted as bus driver picking us up from our hotel. Well run, organised and presented - really good coffee, well worth buying to bring home. We both enjoyed... More

We recently did this tour and we really enjoyed it. The El Trapiche team have put together a very informative tour that walks you through three processes, chocolate, coffee and sugar. The nice leisurely walk through the grounds takes you through the various steps that they do there. The tour is very unique has it shows you how the steps... More

Very informative, interactive coffee tour across scenic grounds containing sugar, cacao and coffee plantations. The tour introduces you to how coffee, cacao and sugar cane are grown and processed. It is a fun thing to do with kids and I highly recommend it. The cocoa you taste before the leche (milk) is added is probably the best and freshest chocolate... More

The tour was excellent. It is cheaper and more recommended than in La Fortuna area as it combine coffee, sugar and Choco tour in one. The guide was knowledgeable and nice. We loved it

This was a fun, informative tour of not only the coffee grown there but also the chocolate and sugar cane. Our guide was very good and answered all our questions. The chocolate part was my favorite, but the coffee was a close second. We made sugar cane candy that we gave to our hotel receptionist. I think sugar cane candy... More

I was skeptical about the coffee, cocoa and sugar cane tour, but proved to be well worth while. Our young lady guide was excellent, provided plenty of explanation, but not too much detail. Very good exhibitions on coffee and cocoa making, as well as crushing sugar cane in a traditional manner. the toffee that they made form the sugar cane... More

This tour was terrific! The guide, Diego, was very knowledgeable and I learned so much about the coffee manufacturing process as well as the sugar cane. We even got a taste of the freshly made cocoa at the end of the tour. Very impressive.
