El Trapiche or Don Juan?
I am looking at both El Trapiche and Don Juan for a coffee tour in Monteverde in December. Has anyone any feedback on which might be the best to choose for a family of 4?

Also, would you recommend reserving on line or just waiting until we get there? I worry that the week of Christmas will be crowded - should I reserve now? Thanks so much for any guidance you can give me.

It is VERY close to the airport they have a cool B&B

Siempre Verde there good personal experience or

close by for more upscale... Great to do around your flights

Either of yours if u must quite tourist trappy.

Monteverde was founded by cheese making farmers

Quaker Pacifists from FairHope AL who got kicked out of the US

so CHEESE is the big thing up there might tour the factory

Best cheese in CR and CA by far...

Always reserve my hotels for high holidays not tours

Get better deals with driver/guides negocios

boots on the ground usually save 50% over online bookings great online discounts good folks

if u elect to book on the web...

Happy Travels!
