A short 10-minute drive from La Fortuna will take us to the Agro-ecological Farm, located in the small town of Agua Azul, 5km from Fortuna. Once we arrive, we will be greeted with a fresh fruit juice and an informative explanation of the Farm’s main objectives, including promoting the sustainable use of natural resources and preserving Costa Rican traditions and culture, experiencing it first hand@
After this warm welcome, we will learn to milk the cows. Everyone will have the opportunity to give it a try, especially the little ones. Next, we will taste-test homemade liquor, chocolate, and fresh milk while we observe the “alambique”, the artisanal liquor distillation process. Afterwards, we will participate in the sugar cane extraction to obtain a delicious juice and then try it alone, with spearmint, liquor, or other of the farm’s organic products.
We will visit a small archaeological ranch where we can observe some ancient indigenous pieces and put them to work in the artisanal process of making chocolate from the cocoa fruit to the delicious chocolate we love. Finally, you can walk through and admire the orchid and medicinal plant gardens!
