Costa Rica Cooking Adventure!
, Feb. 2022
This was a wonderful experience and very much enjoyed by our group. Allen was an excellent guide, providing interesting information both on the drive and at the farm. It was fun to visit the garden and pic things for our lunch. Stephanie led the food preparation with Allen interpreting, and she was a lot of fun to follow. It was very interactive.
A must do!!!

Highlight of our trip to Quepos! Our guide Alan was amazing and so knowledgeable. Even the shuttle ride to the garden from our hotel was informational and so interesting. it was amazing to pick our own vegetables and herbs and use them to cook a meal right there in the middle of the farm! We also got to see the farm animals which was a bonus for me :)
Must do for food lovers!

This experience was awesome. Raoul was our guide, he showed us a little town off the beaten path on the way to the farm, and then took us on a little tour around the farm to show us all the different spice, vegetable, and fruit plants that are grown there. The cooking portion itself was done in an open-air kitchen, surrounded by the lush forest. Everything we made was delicious and easy to replicate at home! Oh, and Raoul took a lot of photos throughout the experience so that we didn’t have to worry about it, and sent them to us afterwards via WhatsApp.

My partner and I loved this! Our tour guide was Geiner, and he was the best. Went out of his way to stop and show me the monkeys, history of Quepos (so interesting) and then the cooking class was so cool being able to pick fresh herbs from the organic garden and cook a traditional Casado. The Casado and especially plantain ceviche was to die for. Geiner was friendly, knowledgeable, and one of the best tour guides we have had. And Stephanie the chef was great too. Would recommend this tour as a way to get to know local culture, history, and traditional Costa Rica cooking. Ask for Geiner if you can :)
