If you’re looking for a great way to get to know the local cuisine, why not make it yourself?

Costa Rica’s tropical climate is the perfect environment for growing some of the world’s best ingredients – which can be used to prepare both the local fare and a wide range of international dishes.

This hands-on experience will be sure to top your list of vacation memories and provide you with some great new tricks and tips you can use at home. And you’ll immediately enjoy the results of your efforts by preparing the evening meal for you and your guests.

Depending on the timing of your trip, you can also arrange to take a guided tour of the local farmer’s market to learn about all the exotic local fruits and vegetables native to the area. Come and experience Costa Rica with all five senses!
