  • Park is small, is entertaining the tour if you want to know a little more coffee, every half hour leaves a tour, is worth $ 21 thousand pesos per person, if you want to and be doubtful you see, you are going to spend approximately 3 hours fun, you do a tour showing you many things during their seasons.

  • Don't expect to learn anything about the coffee process, is rather a place to have a good time but not much more. Highly commercial and lunch offered is not of this world. The jokes are mostly quite vulgar. The staff is friendly and Nice.

  • 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 traditional, interesting tour and beautiful sites. A place to inmerse yourself in the culture of coffee
  • 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!
