I found this site in through ProNatura in Cardel. It is a coffee plantation in rolling hills. The coffee here is shade grown which is beneficial to the cloud forest wildlife as it mimics natural cloud forest conditions. To visit the Ranch, you must contact the owners beforehand. Phone number in 2007 was 01-273-734-1577.
