Jungle Trekking: Coffee, Culture and Wildlife
Join for our unique jungle experience located on the grounds of a historic coffee farm. The farm is in a constant dance with the jungle. There are many parts of the farm that most of the year look like part of the jungle. The patio of the old hacienda house is where coffee has been processed and dried for over 100 years. Standing on the patio with your back to the mountain you look across the country to the Pacific ocean in the distance, but even though it's far away there's nothing to block the wind so you can feel the breeze constantly. You can smell the smells of the jungle and farm mixed together, hear the birds and bugs, the occasional rooster crow. Sometimes you can hear music being played by people in the nearby town or announcements over the public address system of the church. All the sounds of life in harmony. You can feel the energy of the Earth and the sky and the life that happens between them while standing there. It is an energy, a pulse that is often missing in our modern, routine driven life.
We'll hike through the farm to various rock formations - bouldering for all levels of skill from beginner to impossible. This hiking/climbing day has an apex at El Campenario of a 150 ft granite wall, sometimes waterfall, that you can rappel to get some gorgeous views and land in a butterfly garden where there are regularly seen wild electric blue butterflies.
We'll be offering day trips to the beach, volcanic lakes, Mayan ruins, all about 60-90 minutes from the hacienda house.
You don't want to miss this rustic, extraordinary adventure!
