  • Expected me something else. It is entertaining, make you jokes, dance, photos, stories but very little teaching about the coffee culture that was what I expected. If your desire is to learn and taste a good coffee: don't go. You are looking for another place. It is further away from the road, 2.2 Km you can walk, take a few bikes that you come to the place, or a taxi directly from Calarcá. Designed for tourists to pass the time. The food is typical, beans fried rice, fried plantain, water with sugar cane. Vale 22 thousand cop entry and 18 thousand lunch.

  • Expected to experience rural tourism, eco-tourism or cultural tourism and what I found was a crude staging of certain passages of the coffee culture. The language is vulgar, rude, full of expressions of sexual and sexist connotations. References to coffee pickers naturalized exploitation and abuse with an astonishing brazenness. A significant time of the excursion is dedicated visitors dress is, dance and take pictures. They explained the first stations of the route abbreviated, accurate and comprehensive to join another group that had begun earlier. We very much regret the experience: in a general context in which it repudiates violence and working for equity, Recuca back several decades and asserts it is reverse.

  • Park is the coffee Cultural tour (ReCuCa), and that really is. You arrive in a beautiful place, full of colours, with guides and workers dressed in typical clothing of the region, you receive of the same drinks, teach you the basics on the cultivation of coffee, you show such as plantations, then you get to a room full of clothes so you and your companions will wear the same costumes typical, show and dance activities, the entire route is funny, with beautiful landscapes, they allow you to experience the coffee harvest and give you the best quality coffee to finish. I think is required, that it's fun. My family and my we loved it!

  • An excellent tour of coffee culture in the region, but understanding Spanish is a must! It starts with a café campesino, and a short show about the town culture in the region. Afterwards, they dress you in traditional clothing and give a chance to take pictures. Then, there is a tour of the different steps in coffee planting, harvesting and preparing for sale to roasters. Our guide, Cristian, was very funny and helpful and cheerful! A great experience, but without understanding Spanish would probably be impossible.
  • Colorful; fantastic service. The cupping session was awesome!
  • A must visit place to all the visitors to learn about the coffee culture and to have really good food. It's a day long visit and it's really economical for all travelers with lots of activities in line.
  • I do not recommend this place at all. Has nothing to do with the coffee culture. All jokes are offensive and refer to sex... nothing related with coffee, the process or culture. I am from Quindio and honestly, I felt offended, plus I didn't learn ANYTHING about the coffee process. Is a pity because there is a majestic landscape and the infrastructure is also very good.
  • Good place to learn about coffee. And to buy some.
