  • Recuca is a traditional coffee farm, produces around 3000 bags of coffee a year, the tour is full of humor and is very didactic, excellent lunch and the guides are very comical. 100% recommended.

  • We had a blast. We spent 4 hours there, learnt a lot and were laughing the whole time. Great experience for my son as well.  more »
  • A place to learn about everything that has to do with the processing of coffee, from sowing to sale, the best I've seen, very tidy and fun

  • I really enjoyed it, thought it was very well done. The tour guide was friendly and cracking jokes, lots of fun. Beautiful place and informative tour. It's more theatrical than the other tours, but I liked that about it.
  • This is an awesome experience specially if you are travelling with small kids or the rest of the family. The experience is more aimed at giving visitors an inside in the lives of the people who harvest the coffee in Colombia. Be preferred to be very interactive as they will dress you in typical cloth for both men and women so don't be shy and get out of your comfort zone. I went to RECUNCA after a visit to Hacienda Combia and although they were back to back I did not feel as if I was being overwhelmed with the same information simply because Combia was more in the technical side of how the final product got to the coffee bag you open. RECUNCA also covers it but in less depth. Also the price is 1/5 of combia. At 20,000 COP and an additional 16,000 for the biturre which is food. The food is meant to show you how and what workers used to eat while working on the Plantation. If you are looking to learn more about the product I would stop and go combia but instead you want to learn about the folks that live the Juan Valdez way of life then come here.
  • Great for Spanish speakers! Our guide was hilarious and made sure we had plenty of fun as we learned about coffee cultivation, processing, and culture. Not recommend for non Spanish speakers because you will kiss out on a lot of the jokes!
  • Very beautiful place ! The staff were very friendly and were able to explain well the transformation from the sprout to the very end as being a coffee. I learned so much about coffee. They allow you to go out into the fields and also pick out coffee beans! They also make you dress up in the typical Colombian outfits. It was so much fun!
  • It is a very fun and educational about the coffee culture, to Colombians is to return to the past. All the clothing and decoration, recalls times of grandparents, children's is very good for that learn as they were the customs of yesteryear!. Renew energy!
