Overview

The main feature of Don Juan Tours Arenal is the infrastructure we have, since it is well known Arenal area has a very changing climate, from very sunny and humid to heavy rains even with storm sometimes, that is why our tour will allow you to enjoy a whole experience protected from all these sudden changes, our trails are all under roof, so you will have no reason to worry about sun or rain.

This is quite a commercial operation and focuses on the history and process of growing and making both coffee and chocolate. It’s located just out of La Fortuna town, so it’s not on a farm. It turns out this area is not not really suited...More

Walking through the small plantation, he provided history, background, details, and samples all through the property. The details of the growth, harvesting, and production of both consumables...More
