There is something special about having an authentic experience while traveling abroad. Cultures identify themselves through their cuisine and Costa Ricans are no different -- and it's not just "rice and beans..." We invite you to have a delightful, local-style meal and enjoy what will probably be your most-memorable meal in Costa Rica! You'll have the opportunity to learn how to mix our favorite Costa Rican cocktail the "Kiss of the Cacique" and then prepare a full traditional Costa Rican casado meal, complete with "pollo sudado," "picadillo," handmade tortillas and much more!

What To Expect

We'll pick you up from your hotel and drive about 5 minutes to an exclusive, hidden out place next to the enchanting El Salto waterfall near downtown La Fortuna. Upon arrival to your Costa Rica Cooking Class, you'll learn about the garden and farm where the fresh cooking ingredients come from. To get started, you'll try your hand at mixing up a delicious homemade tropical Costa Rican cocktail — our famous Kiss of the Cacique! You will then get ready to learn how to cook up some Tico-style
