Holiday Information

How do you take your coffee? With volcanoes or hot springs, in the rain forest or cloud forest, on the beach or by the lake? Well, on this trip you get to enjoy them all!
Our adventure starts on the white sands of the Caribbean and as we travel through this beautiful green country we meet cooperatives and farmers who will share with us the benefits that Fairtrade has brought to their community.
We make memorable stops at some of the incredible National Parks and Reserves teaming with birds, butterflies, plants and animals where we'll appreciate just a fraction of the natural beauty on offer. During our journey across the country we'll visit farmers growing pineapples, cocoa and coffee and hear about how each group takes pride in their role in protecting the environment.
This tour is a heady mix of lush green forests, monkeys, butterflies and of course, Fairtrade. All bathed in the aroma of that wonderful coffee!
