Fabulous tour with knowledgable guide
Rosa -Kate S, 10-08-2022
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Being avid coffee drinkers we were keen to understand more about what goes into our favourite drink. We really enjoyed being shown around the coffee farm and waterfall. Willman, our guide was very informative and answered all our many questions with a smile. He also pointed out lots of wildlife along the way. We felt safe on the horses and had a memorable experience.
Coffee, views, and a horse ride! What more could you ask for

What a unique way to view the beautiful grounds! You immediately are greeted by your increíble guide and enjoy an excellent coffee while exploring the charming house. The horses are extremely friendly and calm so any level of rider should feel comfortable. The tour includes a nice easy walk around the land and a quick trip down to view the waterfall/river. My partner and I found it the perfect level of informative and relaxing as you learned the history of the coffee plantation and surrounding community. Ending with an ice cold glass of flavored water, cool towel, fresh fruit, cake, and endless coffee (I had 3 cups!) was the cherry on top. Our guide and the whole team that helped along the tour were incredibly friendly and made this a tour I would absolutely recommend.

Bonus tip: if you want a great lunch in the area ask the guide he gave a fantastic recommendation for a spot 15min away with some of the best food and views I had my entire trip in CR. Thanks for everything!
A delightful experience in Costa Rica's largest coffee farm!

We truly enjoyed all aspects of the tour. The horses, Lucero and Bellota, were well-trained and guided by a very professional man named Christian, and our tour guide Randall was excellent and very friendly. The owners were extremely hospitable and knowledgable about the operations. Wilman's tour of the beneficio was thorough and informative, and we really enjoyed the coffee samples and the snacks provided alongside them. The hike down to the waterfall was steep but brief, and we even got to hear a little bit from Randall about how the riverbed itself is being affected by climate change, which gave us a new insight into the area. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn more about the coffee production process in Costa Rica (although the views alone are worth it!).
Quaint, relaxing and breathtaking!

This was a great tour of the Aquiares Coffee farm. Our guides were amazing and the sights were breathtaking. After your time out on the horses you’re greeted with a nice refreshing local drink, coffee, fruits and baked goods. If you’re staying in San Jose it can be a little hike out but it is well worth the commute!
Highly recommended!

What a fantastic tour! Well organised, friendly and professional staff, a lot of information during the riding, beautiful views,.. They really take care of their horses. The snack after the riding was amazing: a huge plate of different fruits (each!), banana pancakes, smoothie and of course delicious coffee. The hacienda made it even better.
Great relaxing horseride

A coworker and I had a great time with Wilman riding horses, enjoying some homemade cake and coffee, and learning about the entire process of growing and processing coffee. It was an amazing experience!
