Las Verapaces Sights

Finca Santa Margarita

  • 3 Calle 4–12
  • Cobán
  • Farm/Ranch

Fodor's Review

For a nation so involved with the coffee industry, Guatemala offers few opportunities for visitors to watch its principal export being produced. The Finca, three blocks west of Cobán's Parque Central, is a pleasant exception. Here you can take a 45-minute tour of an operating coffee farm and witness the process of planting, growing, harvesting, and processing coffee beans. Owned by the Dieseldorff family, which has lived in Cobán for more than a century, the wooden buildings have a distinct Old World feel.
