Trace Mexico's history, agricultural roots, and spectacular scenery —from sea level to mountain top — on a 6-hour trip that includes Pluma Hidalgo coffee culture, sightseeing and lunch at Finca Don Gabriel. Your first stop at Santa Cruz Bay delivers panoramic views of a boat-filled harbor leading to blue Pacific Ocean waters. You'll then ascend into the Sierra Madre mountains to Finca Don Gabriel, where you can peruse a small coffee museum dedicated to local bean growing efforts. At the onsite open-air restaurant, you'll be treated to a buffet meal of Mexican dishes including quesadillas, sopes, nopales, tasajo beef, tamales and freshly made tortillas. Your next stop in Pluma Hidalgo lands you in the middle of Mexico's coffee mecca, a small mountain village situated 5,000 feet in the clouds above sea level. Breathe in the alluring aroma of the town's signature Arabica coffee; next, visit La Pasionaria, a Finca where you could see the complete coffee production process, before heading all the way back down to the waterfront pier.
