It was nice to learn more about all 3 of these things, and great to taste the chocolate and the sugar candies. The coffee, lemon drink and the food provided at the end of the tour was really good, and a... More

El Trapiche Coffee tour was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica Trip. We were initially considering to skip the tour because we have been on Coffee/Chocolate/Sugar cane tours in Dominican and Cuba and found them to be centered around buying souvenirs. I'm so glad we went. It was awesome! our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the... More

I have taken three different coffee tours in Costa Rica and this one is by far the best. One of the reasons was the passion and knowledge of our guide Diego. The coffee plantation has been in the family for four generations and Diego is part of the fourth generation. It is apparent that he has a passion for growing... More

Oscar our guide was very detailed and thorough of the coffee, sugar cane and chocolate processing procedure. The view of the countryside while taking the tour was incredible. We could even see the Pacific Ocean. The best... More

This was one of the best experiences on the trip! This was a delicious, entertaining, and educational tour. I learned lots about sugar cane, coffee, and cocoa. There were also delicious samples to try throughout the tour! This is one of the cutest places, too, because it is a family run business so they are all relatives. It gives the... More

We took a large group of teens on the El Trapiche Tour - and had a marvelous time. The guides were entertaining, educational and engaging. We especially loved the "hands on" activities.

It is a familiy owned business. Even il we were only 4 touring, family members were present at different moment of our tour: the ride with gentle cows and sugar cane process. Our guide was Oscar the cousin. Many thanks to him. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. We througly enjoy it.

The tour involves a coffee and sugarcane plantation, as well as chocolate, although they don't yet have enough cacao plants to produce chocolate commercially. Tour guide spoke English very well and was very funny. The kids loved it, especially making the sugarcane candy at the end. It's a family-run plantation, which is why we chose it over the other tours.
