Sugar Mill Experience


Zapotal is located at the highlands of the Puntarenas province, a small community with chilly weather and surrounded by pastures and forests. Part of the community decided to try their luck into the tourism industry by sharing their daily life with travelers.


Typical Costa Rica country farm which is run by a local family is the perfect place to experience the cozy and easy-going lifestyle of the Tico campesinos. Trapiche, which translated means Sugar Cane Mill, is a super fun cultural day trip that will take you to a still active sugar mill farm. Learn about the process of making sugar step by step, from the raw sugar cane freshly cut until the stage. You will help making the tapas de dulce and the traditional sobado. The farm also has other crops that include the typical products that the local farmers had been producing for over 60 years.
