The Monteverde Trapiche or Sugar Mill tour is run by a local family who will show you the process that was used at the turn of the century to grow and process sugar.

Your bilingual guide will walk with you through this small farm, where you can feed the tilapia fish, pick coffee when in season and ride in an ox cart. You will also have the opportunity to try sugar cane juice or lemonade, eat picadillo de arracache (a typical Costa Rican hash made from a root vegetable) and make candy out of sugar cane; everyone gets to make their own candy
