"La Ruta del Café, our first and most iconic tour created in 1992 to honor the memory
of our Ancestors who, as immigrants from Spain,  established in Puerto Rico in the
1800´s and cultivated coffee in the mountains of Las Marías and Añasco.  More than a
tour, this is the story of my family, of my Mom´s roots."

TOURS DEPARTING FROM MAYAGÜEZ
Twenty-five years and counting since we offer our
first tour to a coffee plantation.  

During our drive to Las Marías  your guide will share
aspects of the social and economical development
of Puerto Rico (1800-1900), focusing in the life and
relation of the
jornaleros and landlords.

We will visit Hacienda Palma Escrita, home of Café
La Casona, one of the few real coffee plantations
still in operation.  You will learn the stages involved
in the cultivation process
(cultivation, harvest of the
fruit, processing, pulping, washing, drying, hulling,
and finally, roasting)
until it gets to your table.

From the first time we started planning our business, we created several routes for our
tours.  The first one, La ruta del café, in honor of my mom´s family who came from
Spain, settled in Puerto Rico, and cultivated coffee in the mountains of Las Marías.  Later,
and with the assistance of architect González, we visited and identified coffee plantations
that were part of the historical and cultural heritage in our route.  
Since then, we have been pioneers in the region and Puerto Rico offering
private ecotours to the small mountainous towns of the western-central
region.  Our efforts in promoting this type of tourism helps the economic
development of the towns we include in our itineraries.
During our drive to Las Marías
(2-1/2 hours), your guide will
share aspects of the social
and economical development
of Puerto Rico (1800-1900).  
Once in Las Marías, we will
stop at Hacienda Palma
Escrita, a real coffee plantation
where you will learn the stages
involved in the cultivation
process
(cultivation, harvest
of the fruit, processing,
pulping, washing, drying,
hulling, and finally, roasting)

until it gets to your table.
Short version of La ruta del
café available Friday through
Sunday.  

We drive to mountains of the  
of Ciales and visit the Coffee
Museum where you will have
history of coffee and taste a
cup of Café Don Pello.  This is
an excellent opportunity to buy
local coffee to take back home
as a gift or for you to taste
while remembering your
vacation in Puerto Rico.
