Villa Vanilla Spice Tour
Flavors of the world
This unique opportunity to visit a working spice farm should not be missed by any true “foodie”. The “Flavors of the World” spice plantation tour and tasting begins with a visit to the post-harvest warehouse where we dry, process, and package our spices and explain their ancient origins, histories and properties. We continue with a gentle walk through the plantation, with sensory stops along the winding “Epiphyte trail”, where you will experience the sights, tastes, aromas, and flavors of tropical spices, essential oil plants, tropical flowering plants and rock gardens. You will pass the fish pond on your way to the Punta Mira Viewpoint, where you will be delighted by an assortment of gourmet chocolate, vanilla, and Ceylon cinnamon treats. A stop at the Spice Shoppe rounds out the tour. The focus of the farm is sustainability, and we have been certified organic since 1992.
