This weekend we decided to walk near San José and we found Finca Don Pachi just 20 minutes away. And it was a great discovery for us, the place is perfect to spend a cool day with family or friends.
We arrived around 9 am, since we were not going by 4×4 car. It is left at the entrance of the farm on the edge of the street, there is a man who takes care of the cars. If you drive 4×4, the car can go up to the main area of the farm. Once we left the car outside, we walked about 100 meters of a climb and reached the main part of the farm.
The place is very beautiful, it is full of trees if you need shade and a flat part to do whatever you want to play, run, jump. At the place there are several giant table games, they have frisbee, soccer and Cricket.
As soon as we arrived, the first thing we did was a walk along a 1.5 km path that goes around a part of the property. It is super easy and beautiful to move around a bit and see another landscape.
After the walk we arrived and they had a picnic set for us like the one you see in magazines or pinterest, the coolest, everything well arranged perfect for carrying cheese, wine and those foods that I don’t even know how to pronounce and we We were all embarrassed since we had only brought things to make ham and cheese sandwiches but we took out our chests and enjoyed them.
Something to mention is that the farm has a super nice view of San José on one side and on the other some very beautiful mountains full of greenery. Obviously we took the dogs and they had a blast running around everywhere.
When we finished eating, the activities began. The first was to sled down (round shape thing) down a mountain and it was crazy fun. Feeling like a child again is priceless. Then we played frisbee, a giant connect 4 and the classic Cricket that I haven’t seen one for many years.
Truth is, this place guarantees you a great time, you enjoy it a lot and the best thing is that it is very close to the city. So don’t think twice about it and go check it out.
