What an amazing day! From meeting the owner Carlos to being guided by the incredibly knowledgeable Josue and Don Arnurfo around the finca on horse (a real ride not just a trail ride). We saw amazing vistas, unique plants and interesting sustainable agriculture. To top it off back at the house we had a home made lunch (a feast is a better description) of almost completely ingredients from their finca. I will be back and hope others get to go too.

Finca el cisne is rated #7 in things to do while in Copan, but after visiting Copan for 15 years, and doing all the possible experiences, I would rate it as #1.... the people, the food, the learning, the exciting possibilities. Carlos is the BEST host- funny, knowledgeable, polite, thoughtful.... We felt like we were pampered Honduran style and our groups were 28 and 23 people. Do NOT miss this opportunity to learn from a family that is giving its all to Honduras- their country that they love

Three of us had a wonderful visit to Finca el Cisne. Carlos is an excellent host and really gave us an insider/behind the scenes look at the entire coffee and cocoa growing and processing system. He is both knowledgeable and entertaining. We also appreciated how he and his family are contributing to the community through establishment of a school and pursuing environmentally appropriate farming techniques. While it is a 50 minute drive outside of Copan it is well worth the trip. We were also happy to contribute to the business by purchasing some excellent coffee beans and ground cocoa.

In four weeks around Central America, this was by far the best experience we had. Carlos is a cultivated guide with an impressive knowledge about the nature, his country and farming. He did everything to make our day as comfortable as possible. The drive up to the Finca itself is impressive as it Leads through different climate zones and gives you an insight into the local communities. At the Finca you’ll get a feeling how sustainable agriculture works. The horse ride was the best I experienced in all of Latin America. On well treated, beautiful horses you’ll ride through an impressive landscape and at the same time get a feeling of how the local cowboys work. Afterwards you’ll get a delicious meal cooked by Doña Irma and finally you can relax in the beautiful natural springs, probably the best way to end such a day. All in all we were more than happy with the service and will recommend it 100%. There is no better way of getting to know Honduran hospitality and culture!

It is a working farm. I learned a lot more about growing and marketing coffee and cacao and cardamom. The Castejon family are superb hosts, and Carlos is warm, gracious, very knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher and tour guide. The scenery was fabulous, you could get as close to the flora and fauna as you care to, the food and drink was authentic if not home-made, and uniformly well prepared and presented. I visited to preview a medical clinic in Agua Caliente as a possible site for a mission trip in 2021, find out how they set up a communication tower for high-speed internet access, and get more familiar with coffee and cacao farming practices. My expectations were exceeded in all 3 efforts. This place deserves closer to a 99% 5-star rating...IMHO😎
