Create an itinerary including Hacienda Buena Vista
Wake up to not only smell the coffee beans, but also learn the history of how they were produced, at Hacienda Buena Vista. One of Puerto Rico’s best remaining examples of a 19th-century coffee plantation, the site was established in 1833 and stretches across 33.1 ha (81.8 ac) of fertile land, including a subtropical forest. Take a tour of the plantation, fully refurbished and in complete working order, to gain a harrowing insight into the lives of the slaves who worked here. Step inside the farm and grinding mill to witness the power of the Rio Canas and how it operates the still-working hydraulic turbine. If you don't feel like taking a tour, enjoy a self-guided wander through the property. See Hacienda Buena Vista and all Ponce has to offer by arranging your trip with our Ponce online trip itinerary planner.

  • Nice demonstrations of restored 19th and early 20th century mill. Short trail hike through forest showing coffee, cocoa and other early agricultural commodities in their natural setting and tour of farm/mill buildings associated with production. There are 2 different sites that offer their own experiences. We chose the one closer to Ponce.
  • Espectacular. This place is beautiful
