We arrived at the farm around 9 am. The road to get there is gravel with some loose parts, even so our Suzuki Vitara arrived very well at the parking lot of the place.
When we arrived, Pablo came out to greet us with a freshly hot beverage made of sweet water in his wood stove. The farm is awesome, with well-cut lawns, picnic tables on ranches and plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors.
We got ready to walk along the path of the farm and started walking. The trail is super well marked with well done steps and everything in the shade. Something curious is that at first it has dolls hanging in a super spooky way because here in October they do a Halloween night walk (possibly we will attend this year).
During the walk we crossed a ravine a couple of times, which is really the source of the Reventazón River, we passed through beautiful forests and we had a great time. In fact we think this trail is perfect for beginners and kids who want to start hiking.
When we got back we ate something in the picnic area and then we left happy to have found this place.
