The only drawback to this tour was the almost two hour ride to the hacienda. We really enjoyed the demos of old school sugar production and macadamia nut processing. The locally grown coffee was excellent. The tour also included and excellent meal.

This is a most impressive tour. Two hours each way by air conditioned coach, surprisingly the roads are very good, the scenery along the way is tremendous. The road from Siquirres to the Hacienda is a bus drivers nightmare - switchback after switchback, etc., etc. Once you arrive you really don't want to leave. demonstrations of macadamia nut processing, coffee bean cleaning & roasting and finally, artisanal processing of sugar cane from cane to raw brown sugar. Add to this a traditional lunch of black beans, rice, steamed local vegetables and chicken pieces in a light gravy. Lastly don't miss the chapel that was built by the owners from materials salvaged from churches that were being renovated.

Friday we called on Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. We ended up doing the ship's tour to the Tayutic Hacienda. My wife really enjoyed the Hacienda visit, where we were shown how they process Sugar Cane, Macadamia Nuts, and Coffee. I thought it was interesting but really could have cut the visit by a half hour as some of the demonstrations seemed prolonged just to fill the time. The nice lunch on an open deck patio with a view was very nice. This was a very long day, however. Meeting time was 6:50 AM and we returned to the ship at 3:28PM for a 3:30 "All aboard." We did not even get inside the port building where our friends were able to obtain some very nice local products.
