Program

Dive into the exotic tastes of the Caribbean and Costa Rica on this exploration of the region's vibrant food and colorful culture. Tuck into classics like rice and beans with coconut milk, try new flavors like patacon made with green bananas, and chat with local cooks to find out more about the region's culinary heritage.

Team up with your guide in Puerto Viejo and head out on foot to scope out the area's best eats. With six different food samples along your route, you might stop in at a local restaurant for bowls of rich rondon (seafood soup), bite into delicate pieces of chicken prepared in banana leaf, and save room for a sweet tooth-satisfying dessert of pan bon, an aromatic bread with dried coconut and fruit.

Along the way, chat with the chefs that prepare these Costa Rican specialties, learn how other cultures have influenced the country's cuisine, and get tips from your guide on other places to eat around town before you part ways and continue your culinary adventure on your own.

Instructors

Victor
Victor was born and raised in Puerto Viejo, Limon and learned to cook since he was a child. Being part of a family of five boys, his mother taught him and his brothers to cook at an early age. His family owns a Caribbean restaurant in town where he worked as a cook for over 20 years. On 2017, he decided to work independently and to share his favorite recipes and his culture with the visitors because even though Puerto Viejo is a very touristic area, most visitors don’t get the chance to try the authentic local food or to learn about the history of the Afro Caribbean people and culture.
