What you'll do

Combine a guided forest tour with a licensed naturalist guide and a farm to table type experience where you learn about the growing process of the ingredients that you can later turn into a delicious dish. The day begins with a tour of local forest trails with Manolo as your certified guide. Here you will learn about the magic of the ecology of cloud forest and the history of conservation efforts in the zone at the same time as Manolo's trained ear, eye and spotting scope will help you see any wildlife with which you are lucky enough to cross paths. Several trail systems are options, each with a different entrance fee (not included) After your tour, we invite you to come to our organic veggie garden, fruit trees, and small sugar cane, banana, and coffee groves. Depending on your individual interest, we can talk about our project with a focus on cultural and agricultural history, tropical ecology, health and wellness or just plain joy about the marvels of the seed to food plate process! Together we can decide whether you would like to participate in garden tasks, plant a tree in our reforestation area, or just choose which produce to harvest and take with you
