Near the foot of the Vulcan de Agua is a beneficio called Bella Vista. Bella Vista which is run by Luis Pedro Zelaya, is both a farm and a wet and dry mill.
Luis Pedro started working at Bella Vista after being educated in Honduras. It has been in the family for generations and is now owned by Luis Pedro’s father who also is called Luis Pedro.
Together they have grown the company, beginning with the managing of their own farms: Bella Vista, Pulcal, Candelaria, Buena Vista, Chuito and Santa Clara. Over time they began to manage other farms in the Antigua region.
This farm is owned by Maria Zelaya, Luis’ aunt & third-generation farmer who continues the traditions started by her ancestors in the 1800’s.
