From past to present

You will discover Agua Blanca area from the past and present. We will leave the Mucuposada and we will go down by the Camino Real de los Andes already used by the prehispanic populations, through coffee plantations. You will meet a rural family, discover the way little coffe producers live, their culture and music and you will taste their aromatic coffee. We will have lunch in Las Monjas, contemplating the scenery of Calderas. You will be able to observe the difference between past and present in this rural area where coffee producers live at the foot of the Andean mountains.
