Villa Vanilla / Rainforest Spices reviews
Touring the farm at Villa Vanilla was the highlight of my trip in CR! Kris was fantastic and super knowledgeable about the spices they grow on the farm and the science behind them. Biodynamic farming.... more »
Really fun tour! We enjoyed being able to both taste things (like the fruit of a cocoa pod or allspice) and also smelling and seeing the plants. It's not a too long walk, so definitely good for kids..... more »
We had a wonderful time visiting this place. The drive there from Jaco was easy. We got some heavy rain once there and it made our tour even more epic. I learn a lot, very interesting. It was a lovely surprise to come here. Wish I had bought more spices.
Tour is short if you're looking for a quick afternoon or morning activity. The grounds are very pretty. Make sure you take cash, however; they don't have a credit card reader.
