Great Experience
Yvonne_G, June 2023
It was raining so we didn't get to harvest the vegetables but we still had a great time. Nelson was our guide and we loved him. He was knowledgeable and kind. The dinner was amazing as well as the experience of helping make the dinner.
Farm to table experience!

True farm to table experience. We picked our own vegetables and made tortillas from scratch. Our hostess was very nice and the food was delicious! You won't be disappointed this tour was so cool.
What a great experience!

I can't say enough good things about this cooking class / finca tour! Our tour guide, Hugo, was so pleasant and humorous. The food was so fresh and delicious, and the facility was very nice! With just the simplest of ingredients, we made plantain chips, yucca chips, patacones, tortillas and a muy delicioso pollo! Don't pass on the ginger iced tea.
