SOME EXTRA TIPS
The beautiful mountains of Monteverde are the home of El Trapiche Tour. A Costa Rican family offers guided tours through their farm, an opportunity to see tilapia, banana, macadamia, sugar cane, and coffee plantations. Meanwhile, an experienced guide explains the history and process involved in growing sugar cane, inviting guests to taste its various forms. An optional oxcart trip is a fun chance to see the extraction of juice from the sugar cane with a pulley moved by oxen, and a demonstration of the Saca de Guaro (traditional distilled liquor). The tour ends with a delectable traditional snack and drink.
