What I did
Don Juan Coffee Tour
Our hotel of choice was actually under construction, but we lucked out. We managed to get a room with a view.
After arriving, we ventured out to visit the Don Juan Coffee Plantation. It was FANTASTIC!!!!!! Peter and I lucked out, and scored a private tour. Mainly due to the off season and good timing. Our guide (JR) took us through the entire process. The tour changed how we buy and taste coffee. It also opened our eyes to the North American Coffee Market and its shortcomings.
The Don Juan tour was a highlight and I'd recommend it to any travelers in the Monteverde area.
