Greet your guide at your Huatulco hotel and relax as your air-conditioned minivan transports you to the tumbling hills of Sierra Madre de Oaxaca. Refresh with onboard water and soft drinks as you enjoy the stunning scenery of the drive.
Begin your cultural excursion with a visit to the Finca La Gloria, a traditional coffee plantation that still employs customary coffee-making techniques. Greet the owners of the 19th century farm and embark upon an informative tour that explains how the organic coffee grains get from crop to cup. Sample a steaming cup of the aromatic coffee at the end of your plantation tour.
Next, wander to the magical Llano Grande, a sacred place in which crystal clear water flows from the rugged rocks. Take a refreshing dip in the powerful waterfall, gazing at the 60-foot (18-meter) crashing cascade of water. Raise your adrenaline levels by swinging from the rope swing suspended 20 feet (6 meters) above ground, plunging into the inviting pools below.
Conclude your day in a culinary way with a delicious lunch at the plantation. Sample Oaxacan specialties prepared according to ancient recipes before you purchase a ticket to the nearby butterfly farm. Marvel at the wonderful wings of the insects before you return to the minivan for your journey back to your Huatulco hotel.
