Farm-To-Table Cooking Class
"The entire experience was fun and lovely. Would go again, for sure! The people were warm and welcoming. We started with a wonderful garden tour, tried fresh picked ingredients, and learned how to squeeze sugar cane to make juice. We made tons of delicious empanadas from scratch, smashed and fried plantains, plantain chips, and a soursop smoothie! The wood stove was so neat to use and watching them just cut a plantain leaf down and dry it to use as a plate was cool! We learned so much and I can’t wait to try it at home for my family!"..."

La Paz Waterfalls Gardens (Half day).
"The Garden was a memorable experience. We enjoyed a comfortable and informative automobile drive from San Jose to La Paz (and back) with our tour guide Jean (Jon). There was a steady fresh rain that fell while we walked about in La Paz Waterfalls Garden which provided a true feeling of being present in the rain forest . Standing among the Humming birds was a highlight. The Falls were incredible as was all the beautiful flora and fauna throughout. Jon guided us through the gardens and was able to answer all our questions and point things out that we otherwise would have missed. The buffet was wonderful. Our guide employed a smart travel strategy by starting the day early and getting back to San Jose before the traffic rush period. As a consequence we had time in the afternoon to enjoy the fabulous National Museum in San Jose which our guide was kind enough to drop us off at."..."
