Farm Tour. After a short 35-minute drive you will arrive at a beautiful area dedicated to reforestation.
It is owned and operated by the Mendez family and located in La Tigra of San Carlos near the mountainous area around the Children’s Eternal Rainforest.
You will go for a walk through the rainforest and hopefully spot some of the unique animals found in this area such as the anteater, the tinamus bird, the coatimundi, morpho butterflies and several tropical bird species.
After the walk you will return to the Family Farm. Once you get there you will learn about the daily lifestyle of a typical Costa Rican farm family, their customs, traditions and daily chores to maintain their farm.
Then you will tour the property and receive some information about the farm products like black pepper, vanilla, yucca, coffee, banana and corn.
Finally, you will enjoy a delicious lunch made of fresh products from the farm prepared on a wood burning stove for the most authentic Costa Rican flavor. In the late afternoon you return to La Fortuna.
