A 15-minute cab ride from Antigua in Guatemala takes you to an amazing macadamia farm called Valhalla Finca de Macadamia (Valhalla Macadamia Estate). Run by an eccentric and funny man from Northern California and his beautiful and bright Guatemalan wife, Valhalla makes for an enjoyable and unique half-day trip from Antigua. Hundreds of varieties of plants grow throughout the farm, and dispersed around the land are healthy and strong macadamia trees producing the most delicious macadamia nuts I have ever tasted.

Processing macadmia nuts at Valhalla farm, Antiqua, Guatemala 

Valhalla offers very informative tours in Spanish or English explaining the process in which macadamia nuts are grown, harvested, shelled, dried, and roasted and how their farm is doing all of this in the most sustainable way possible.

Getting there

Entrance to Macadamia Farm, Antiqua, Guatemala

Hop on any “chicken bus” from Antigua going towards San Miguel Duenas, and tell the driver you're going to "Las Macadamias". The driver will know where to drop you. Or take a taxi from Antigua and tell the driver that you're going to "La Finca de Macadamia circa San Miguel Duenas." The driver will also know where to take you.  To learn more about the Valhalla Project and the macadamia farm visit their website.

Buenos días, estoy interesada en comprar las cáscaras de macadamia para las jardineras de mi casa.  Venden ustedes por costal?  Necesitaria talvez unos 6 costales.  Favor escribirme o bien llamarme a mi celular 43946035 o casa 23690964. Gracias por su atención.

Estimada Sra. De Bianchi,
Siento que BidonTravel.com no vende pepitas de nuez de macadamia ni nueces. Póngase en contacto con la granja directamente. ¡Gracias por escribir y los mejores deseos para usted!
