Hacienda Buena Vista, Ponce

4.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Ponce
Wake up to not only smell the coffee beans, but also learn the history of how they were produced, at Hacienda Buena Vista. One of Puerto Rico’s best remaining examples of a 19th-century coffee plantation, the site was established in 1833 and stretches across 33.1 ha (81.8 ac) of fertile land, including a subtropical forest. Take a tour of the plantation, fully refurbished and in complete working order, to gain a harrowing insight into the lives of the slaves who worked here. Step inside the farm and grinding mill to witness the power of the Rio Canas and how it operates the still-working hydraulic turbine. If you don't feel like taking a tour, enjoy a self-guided wander through the property. See Hacienda Buena Vista and all Ponce has to offer by arranging your trip with our Ponce online trip itinerary planner .

  • Good place for family with kids. Good island experience mix with a historical perspective. They give you a tour of the whole place! Cheap only $11 per adult.
  • Great old coffee plantation that is being restored to it's original state. Serves as a landmark, not a place for coffee. Visit the old hacienda and see how they lived. How the building survived all those hurricanes since 1850s! All equipment is original and still operational. It's powered by a diverted water stream from the waterfalls on the grounds. Must see! The forest is nice and cool and shaded.
