On the way to Don Carlos’s farm, the guide will talk about the history of this town and the peculiar relationship between its inhabitants and the Arenal Volcano; how its activity has affected their traditional way of living, agriculture, cattle breeding and even the price of the land. Once arrived, Don Carlos will be delighted to proudly talk and share with you a little bit of his 30-year experience in his dairy farm. After visiting the stable, we will go to the dairy to learn about traditional methods of processing the milk into butter, cheese and yogurt.
