Beautiful farm, the guides were very informative about the fruit and spices they grow. The restaurant and gift shop is decorated beautiful with wood floors and ceilings.

I liked this attraction a lot more than I thought I would. It was very informative and a fun tour. We were able to taste several different spices and we had freshly squeezed orange juice on our return to the restaurant.

Mark was our guide. It was fun to see peppercorns be processed, and interact with the workers. It was a great day to walk around the farm, smelling and tasting all the spices and herbs. The building was beautiful.

We did this tour in conjunction with Nim Li Punit ruins, and it was definitely a highlight of the day. As we drove around the large spice farm, a worker or the driver would pull off leaves, fruits, and other parts of the spice plants...More
