"Don Isaac met us at the edge of the jungle and soon we were hiking through his amazing property and learning how he has taken his five hectares of land and turned it into a natural preserve as well as a production farm. A group of wild turkeys joined our hike and Don Isaac pointed out enormous wasp hives high in the trees. He tried to call out the endangered monkeys living in the canopy, but the monkeys kept their distance. He is working to protect nearly extinct native plants, including endangered palms traditionally used for making thatched roofs, all while cultivating 14 different varietals of coffee. 

He has one of the healthiest farms that we saw. His plants are shaded and he takes great care to fertilize each one three times a year with a combination of guano, compost, and dolomite. This is no small feat as the fertilizer must be hauled into remote areas of jungle without equipment. Many of his trees are nearly 30 years old but are still producing because he takes care of them so well. Besides coffee, he raises pineapple, plantain and has seven beehives. Of course, being the foodies that we are, we sampled it all and it was delicious."
