After learning about the production process, you'll visit the natural swimming hole of Pozo Azul for a refreshing dip, so bring your bathing suit! Enjoy some free time and have lunch before you embark on an afternoon walking tour of Minca's town center. Alternatively, visit the hummingbird balcony at Hotel Minca, where you can relax and observe the hundreds of hummingbirds that feed there.
