Personal expenses and tips
We start on a large farm where you only have to stretch out your arm to pick and taste avocados, oranges, lemons, mangos, papayas, sapotes, guavas, passion fruit, and many others types of fruit.
After a 2-hour hike uphill, stop at a mirador (lookout-point) with an amazing panoramic view of the villages Los Patos, Ojeda and Paraíso, the river Riosito, and the high mountains of Cachote. We will continue our morning trek uphill to the village Bario Nuevo, founded by a Haitian family who produces coffee within the cloud forest.
In the afternoon (after lunch), we will cross several coffee farms on top of the mountain and then head all the way downhill to the canyon of the river Riosito. Where the trail meets with the river, you can take a refreshing dip in a king-sized natural swimming pool, also a popular playground for the local children.
Finally, we will follow the river downhill to the village Paraíso.
