Lonely Planet review

Visiting this working farm, 24km from Copán Ruinas, is more like an agro-eco experience than a tour. Founded in the 1920s and still operating, the finca mainly raises cattle and grows coffee and cardamom, but it also produces corn, avocados, beans, breadfruit and star fruit, among other things.

Day-long and overnight packages include guided horse riding through the forests and pastures (with a stop to swim in the Río Blanco) and tours of the coffee and cardamom fields and processing plants. If you come between February and October you can help with the harvest. Lodging is five simple, rustic rooms in the old workers quarters, with meals and a visit to nearby hot springs included. You can book tours in their office inside the Café ViaVia.
