After pickup at your hotel in La Fortuna, drive out of town for a 4-hour culinary extravaganza that lets you cook and eat with a Costa Rican family. Listen as your guide fills you in on the intricacies of Costa Rican cuisine during the drive.
Once you arrive at your host family’s home and meet the family, you may head out to the garden to pick some vegetables for a fresh salad. Prepare a meal with the family, chosen for their friendliness and hospitality. In addition to eating authentic local cuisine, this is also a wonderful opportunity to practice your Spanish.
Costa Rican cuisine is more than just beans and rice, though they are staples at nearly every meal in Costa Rica. During this meal, make things like empanadas, fried plantains or a guisado, or stew. Learn about Costa Rican agricultural products such as yucca, tiquisque (a relative of taro), mamón chino (a spiky fruit that is both sweet and tart) and other interesting local foods.
At the end of the meal, say ‘adios’ to your new friends and relax on the ride back to your hotel, knowing you just experienced true pura vida.
