The Monteverde Trapiche or Sugar Mill tour is run by a local family who will show you the process that was used at the turn of the century to grow and process sugar.

Your bilingual guide will walk with you through this small farm, where you can feed the tilapia fish, pick coffee when in season and ride in an ox cart. You will also have the opportunity to 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; everyone gets to make their own candy

no smoking

Smokers Be Aware!
Costa Rica has recently passed one of the strictest smoking regulations in the world; hotels are 100% SMOKE FREE.
If you are a guest at the hotel, and want to smoke, by law you are required to leave the property. This is a 300 meter walk to the road outside the main gate, day or night, rain or shine. We realize that this is very inconvenient, but it’s the law. There is an $800 fine for breaking this law.
