A "trapiche" is a small mill. The sugar mill tour is run by a local family; visit their farm and they’ll show you a turn of the century process once used to grow and process sugar.
Your bilingual guide will walk with you through the property, where you can feed the tilapia fish, pick coffee when in season and ride in an ox cart – an artsy old Costa Rican tradition. You’ll try sugar cane juice or lemonade, eat picadillo de arracache (a typical Costa Rican hash made from a root vegetable) and make candy out of sugar cane.← Back to Activities
