    Directions to the Mountain:
    Please plan an arrival time with us prior to arriving in San Roque so that we can meet you at the bottom of the hill to guide you up to the farm. In the event that you can’t get in contact us upon arriving in town, here are the directions: Follow the road to Montaña Risa (Google Maps will take you to a gated dirt road). Instead of turning up this road, continue past it by approximately 100 meters. You will walk around a bend and past a small structure to your right, then you will come across another road to your right leading up to a large brick house with a blue roof. Go up this road, cross the small bridge, and walk on the right side of the brick house. You will begin to see signs with the Montaña Risa symbol. Follow these for approximately 30 minutes and you will come to our property.
