Cacao Agroforestry Farm Puerto Rico
This cacao farm was paradise!
I had an amazing time camping amongst the beautiful trees and scenery on Ricardo's farm. I felt very safe and comfortable in my hammock. The bathroom and cooking area were great amenities, too. I was also pleased that I was not bothered by ant insects during my three night stay in March! The view from that altitude was amazing. The trails within the property provided lovely morning walks, too. I loved seeing the cacao trees, especially. Ricardo was very kind and generous with his knowledge. As an agronomist and farmer who grew up in PR, he has an instinct for the local ecology and growing conditions. He also had some wonderful suggestions for what to get up to during my day trips! The drive to the location was very smooth, despite many twists and turns through the mountainous roads- be careful of the narrow pavement. The spot was great if you want to check out more than one region within the island. I travelled to Isabela, Rincon, Aguadilla, and Rojo. Each was an easy drive from the campsite once I got used to the narrow roads! I would come back here all over again! Thank you, Ricardo and family!

Amazing Camping Amongst the Cacao
This was an incredible experience. There is nothing quite like camping in a tropical humid forest surrounded by the sounds of the wildlife. Our hosts were caring and knowledgeable about their land. It was a surreal experience to live on and agroforestry farm for a few days. We got to really appreciate what it means. And hopefully many more people will go get the perspective we were able to enjoy. My wife and I feel so lucky to have experienced this truly singular place. Amenities offered kept us comfortable too. We were able to cook and clean with the gas burners and rain capture powered sink. Same went for the full bathroom. Clean and extremely comfortable for a campsite. Just don't mind the peeping anole lizards when you shower. If you go, say hi to the family that owns the farm for us. They taught us a lot! Finca Hekiti es muy bonita!

Beautiful site!
Beautiful site with a nice bathroom and shower. The fruit trees are so beautiful and camping amongst them was so cool. There isn’t just cacao trees there’s grapefruit and banana trees too! There’s a nice platform to put your tent on down in the woods or there’s the option to camp up near the container home at the top of the property if you’re not comfortable walking deep into the woods. Ricardo had everything you could need for cooking in a cute little kitchen area outside. Would def recommend this place. We didn’t want to leave ❤️

My kids and I really enjoyed camping at the farm. It was easy to get to and the beautiful views were all over. I definitely recommend coordinating the tour, Ricardo is a passionate teacher and transmits his knowledge about cacao and, nature in general, easily. 🍫🍫🍫 melts in your mouth super yummy! Can’t remember trying any chocolate that comes close!

Great camping experience @Ricardo’s
We had a fantastic stay at Ricardo’s cacao farm. He was very helpful in getting us acquainted with the farm and the various flora & fauna. The campsite was on a platform in the middle of the forest a short walk away from the parking area. The trails are not that developed but it wasn’t much of a problem. There’s a great outdoor cooking area with all the supplies you might need with a bathroom close by. The main house also has places to put up hammocks with a great view of the mountains and has an electrical outlet. Overall, Ricardo couldn’t have been a better host. Highly recommend this super cool site.
Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
