TURRIALBA VOLCANO UPDATE
Los Titos Coffee Farm is located 9 miles(14km) SE of Turrialba Volcano. Prevailing winds in the area blow the ash eruptions to the West, so we are not afected.We do have however magnificent views of the ash cloud eruptions.
Take a walk through the beautifully dense tropical gardens or visit the coffee, banana and passion fruit plantations.
The Turrialba region also offers more active pursuits. The best white water rafting in the country is at nearby Pacuare River (in top 10 in the world, according to Outdoor Magazine), with pickup and return at the farm. Other tours include hiking near active Turrialba Volcano, horseback riding through the CATIE botanical preserve, coffee tours, canopy/zip lining, Tarzan swing, Guayabo archeological park, a snake farm, and more.
You have the newly refurbished 200 (website hidden). (1600 sq.ft.) house to yourself. Special care to preserve the original character and ambiance of the house was taken while updating the 2 full bathrooms with abundant hot water and modern plumbing, and in rebuilding the large, completely equipped kitchen, including dishwasher and microwave. Living room, dining room and bedrooms retain the original high wooden ceilings and floors, constructed from uneven width wooden planks. 3 bedrooms sleep 5 people. Large master bedroom (4x4.4 mts / 13x14 ½ ft) has king size bed, (attached twin beds with bed bridge - which can be separated upon prior request), second bedroom (2.4x3.25 mts / 8x11 ft ) with queen size bed, and a third smaller bedroom (2.4x3 mts / 8x10 ft) with one twin size bed. If necessary, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room can sleep an additional 2 people. Turn off your cell phone, close the wooden shutters on the windows, and sleep in perfect country darkness until the rooster wakes you in the morning to enjoy complementary traditional costarican breakfast,with our farm grown Los Titos Coffee.Savor seasonal tropical fruits by the pool, and relax in the sauna o hammocks.
You aren’t taking a vacation in order to make beds and sweep up every day, so daily (weekdays) cleaning service is included.
A tropical garden, developed over two generations, surrounds the house. And in the orchid garden, when in season, you can see up to 20 different species in bloom. A short forest trail provides your own private tropical botanical garden tour with multiple tropical plants and trees, and benches along the way to sit and birdwatch. If you prefer, lie in a hammock in the shade watching the dozens of bird species that frequent the garden and bird feeders all year long, or the sloth family that lives in the trees around the house. You’re likely to see them almost year round.
Seasonally available tropical produce from the farm include guanabana, passion fruit, plantains, cassava, Kalamanzi lemons, Tamarillo (tree tomatoes), and dehydrated miniature bananas. You are welcome to visit the coffee plantation, and during harvest season (Aug-Nov) you can grab a basket and pick coffee alongside the local residents. The farm manager and his family also live nearby on the farm, so local knowledge is always available.

About the Host, Adela
I am an artist (see the paintings in the house) and a mom. I am Costa Rican and Swiss, but I've lived in Costa Rica all my life. I manage my parents coffee farm; they recently moved back to Switzerland for health reasons and no longer live on the farm. My home is about 2 hours away from the farm, but there's plenty of help around and I'm always available by phone. I enjoy entertaining and meeting people from around the world, and I look forward to having you as our guest! I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for the natural wonders of Turrialba area.
