Finca Filadelfia is a coffee farm and resort set just outside La Antigua. It’s been around since 1866, and is thus one of the oldest coffee plantations in the country.

During the one-hour tour, you’ll enjoy jaunt around Finca Filadelfia. The tour begins at the coffee plantation, where travelers can photograph rows of coffee plants and learn how coffee grown. The tour then continues on to other parts of the farm. Along the way, your bilingual guide will explain the plants and animals that you encounter—the area is biologically diverse and there’s a good chance that you’ll spot birds or other animals.

Finca Filadelfia began planting coffee in 1866, making it one of Guatemala’s oldest coffee plantations. It’s set on a hilly piece of property outside La Antigua. Guests of this tour will enjoy great views and abundant nature.

The two-hour tour begins at the coffee plantation, where you’ll wander through rows of coffee and learn about the cultivation and harvesting process. This is a great area for photographs. After visiting the coffee farm, you’ll make your way through a coniferous forest. You’ll pass cypress, pine and fir trees, and may be able to spot birds and other animals.

Eventually you’ll make it to the cloud forest. Cloud forests are one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet. It’s easy to see this as you stroll along the densely forested trails. Birds, mammals, flowers, and insects may be seen during this portion of the hike.
