We love coffee, so we had to go on a coffee tour when we visited the Santa Elena/Monteverde region of Costa Rica. The tour was actually a 3 in 1 deal because not only do you learn about the coffee plantation but you also learn a bit about how chocolate is harvested and the uses of cacoa. Lastly, you get to participate in making sugar cane juice and sampling its sweet, refreshing taste. We booked the coffee tour through out hotel in Santa Elena. It was $30 per person for the two and a half hour tour. This included the shuttle to and from our hotel. The tourist infrastructure is a well oiled machine here in Costa Rica.
