What you'll do

Welcome to the first and only plantain tour in Colombia, located in a marvelous area of the Coffee cultural landscape. In our experience you will be able to learn everything, beginning with the sowing of the plantain all the way to its cooking and traditional recipes. With us you will be able to experience:

-Plant the trees: we will make the preparation of what we call the “aguja” to plant the plantain seed.
-Cultivate: you will learn the unique cultivation of the plantain which includes 3 steps.
- Harvest: you will learn how the plantain is harvested, how you cut it, wash it and handle each one individually.
-Taste delicious plantain based food: after a day of physical activity the best part for every farmer is to be able to eat their own products. You will enjoy a delicious surprise tasting with typical dishes of the region all, obviously, made with plantain!

You will love this unique experience, a cultural tradition that is part of the Colombian history.
