After breakfast with the family, you will head to their farm to learn more about their livelihood. Here, you will try local fruit that is in season, and learn about different tropical produce such as coffee, cacao, coca, tea, among others. You will mostly learn about coffee, which is one of the representative products of the area, and which the family exports through their cooperative. These cooperatives award organic certification as well as adhere to fair trade practices. You will discover what exactly is behind a great cup of coffee, and even be able to prepare your own coffee in the traditional artisanal way of the region.
After lunch, you will bid farewell to the family and continue on our way to the train station, where we will travel to the town of Aguas Calientes and arrive at approximately 6 pm. You will have the night to spend at your leisure in your hostal (basic accommodation with hot water - can be upgraded). In your hostal, your guide will explain what the tour for tomorrow entails and afterwards you can relax in the hot springs of Aguas Calientes!
