5 Must-Visit Coffee Haciendas in Puerto Rico
Coffee lovers, rejoice. The lush mountainsides of Puerto Rico promise more than just amazing views. Home to dozens of coffee plantations dating back to the 1800s, they’re the hallmark of a coffee culture that’s just as rich and robust as its beloved brew.
It goes without saying then, that a visit to an authentic hacienda for a coffee farm tour is a Puerto Rico must. While there’s a long list that we’re sure you’d love, we’ll keep it to five of the island’s most-loved coffee plantation tours.
No matter how much you love a dark roast, one of the best parts about a coffee tour in Puerto Rico has to be the views. Hacienda Muñoz tends to be a crowd favorite for just that reason. A quick, 30-minute drive from Old San Juan, Hacienda Muñoz feels worlds away with its open, green spaces and rolling hillsides lined with coffee fields.
The walking tour runs through Puerto Rico’s agricultural history, digging into the coffee production and roasting process. Afterwards, enjoy a tasting before relaxing in the hacienda’s on-site coffee shop or restaurant. Tours are offered in both English and Spanish.
When it comes to Adjuntas’ Sandra Farms there’s a lot to love. Their dedication to sustainable farming practices and their lively tour guides are a good place to start—but the artisan chocolate on the tour really sends it over the top. (Is there honestly a better pairing?)
But truly, this is the spot to visit if eco-friendly agriculture fits anywhere into your interests. They’ve mastered the craft, making them one of the most sustainable coffee plantations in all of Puerto Rico.
Plus, the winding 4×4 road up to the hacienda doubles as a unique way to enjoy a little off-roading adventure.
Hacienda Tres Angeles
While you’re up in Adjuntas, add Hacienda Tres Angeles to the list. Another eco-friendly coffee farm with a dedication to sustainability, this family-owned and operated hacienda offers the best of everything.
Perched on a mountain top, the views of the island countryside are worth the drive alone. You’ll be charmed by the plantation history, the family that runs it and of course, the quality of everything at the farm—from the coffee beans to the café. Here, you’ll feel like part of the family.
Please note that tours are currently offered in Spanish only.
Here’s where things get interesting. A certified agro-tourism destination, this family-owned plantation takes things to the next level with a unique coffee farm bed and breakfast on-site.
Clean, comfortable and brimming with good old fashioned Puerto Rican hospitality, a stay at Hacienda Pomarrosa is guaranteed to become one of your most treasured memories. Join for an intimate coffee tour, then settle in for a stunning sunset on the porch.
In the morning, enjoy a freshly prepared Caribbean breakfast paired with—of course—a cup or two of Puerto Rico’s best coffee. From the first moment to the last, the entire experience is the perfect island adventure.
Hacienda Buena Vista
History comes to life at Hacienda Buena Vista. An original plantation from the 1800s, this restored property now acts as a living museum of sorts. Visit for an in-depth exploration of Puerto Rico’s long and complex history as a coffee exporter.
You’ll be able to tour the grounds, visiting the various buildings and getting an up-close look at the centuries-old coffee processing equipment. There’s no café or tasting here, but the tour guides are some of the most knowledgeable on the island and the story they tell is fascinating.
Please note, advanced reservations are required to visit the property.
