    In Recuca you will learn much about the coffee culture. Planting, harvesting, drying, roasting and cupping of the Cafe.recuca is located 30 minutes from the bus terminal of Armenia and in the same place there are islands of tourism, so there is no as Miss. The idea to visit this farm importantly people to learn about the culture of the region, so that the farm has a single menú(arroz, frijoles, chorizo/chicharrón, maduro, carne molida, agua de panela, y como postre, mazamorra) and the shops of souvenirs most of the products are based on coffee, so it is recommended to take some kind of snack if this menu is not to your liking, taking into account that the journey lasts around Central magnificent of 3 hours.

    The broader plan includes wearing traditional costume coffee, a tour of the process of gathering and packaging of coffee for export and domestic consumption, participate in a short simulation of manual harvesting of coffee, drink typical farms coffee makers (bogadera) and a small teatrino of Jeeps, all with explanations of each stage. The guides are very charismatic (special mention for Leandro) and throughout the tour make laugh to visitors. The coffee estate itself is very beautiful. The coffee tasting is also highly recommended, though the cost is in addition to the travel.

    Great option to know more about the coffee culture. The park is small and you don't have to walk a lot but the guides explain the whole process and have entertaining activities to involve you in the culture. A must go in the coffee triangle.

    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.

    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!

    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!
