“Easy way to do the W trek as everything is organised for you.

If doing camping, sleeping bags and matts are provided though this isn't communicated anywhere.
The trek itself is amazing. Hiking Poles are recommended
Views are incredible and worth the hard work.”

After being picked-up from your accommodation either for the 10:00 or 15:00 tour (depending on the day of the week), head inland and enjoy the misty mountain air of Monteverde. Learn about the conservation of this precious ecosystem from local guides and enjoy an included sugarcane and coffee “Trapiche” Tour where you will learn all the ins and outs of Costa Rican culture.

During the tour of the farm you will encounter a small tilapia pond, plantations of bananas, plantains, arracache, macadamia, oranges, sugarcane and coffee. As you walk around the farm, you will learn about the process involved in sugarcane cultivation, natural history and also the opportunity to taste the sugarcane and its derivatives. Later you will learn about the coffee process, from planting to crushing, peeling and roasting. After the walk, you’re invited to make a short trip in an oxen cart (not obligatory) that will take you to the building where the cocoa process is shown. Learn about the process of cocoa from different stages, starting with a brief explanation of how the tree develops, its pollination, how to get the fruit, seed fermentation, drying, roasting and grinding cocoa, and of course how to obtain delicious chocolate. To finish the tour you will learn how to process different types of sugarcane products, such as brown sugar, traditional “perica” or “sobado” (fudge), caramel and “guaro“ (cane liquor). During the tour you will have the opportunity to interact and make your own candy before tasting a ”gallo de arracache” and an exquisite cup of coffee, lemonade or aguadulce.

After the tour, drop-off at your accommodation in Monteverde.
Additional information: The departure from Monday to Saturday is at 10:00 am or 3:00 pm; on Sunday the only departure is at 3:00 pm
