Costa Rica Culinary Tours

For years and years, Costa Rica’s culinary culture has been largely written off by most travelers, critics and expats–myself included. However, things have improved immensely over the years.

Costa Rican Coffee Ready for ExportCosta Rica is a the source for a wide range of tropical fruits and vegetables. The bounty includes such prime ingredients as mangos, starfruit, papaya, bananas, pineapple and passion fruit.
