Foodies unite!! Finally, there is a 7-day food-lovers vacation coming to Central America! Costa Rica’s most famous food products-coffee, chocolate, and cheese-are featured in specialty cooking workshops, farm-to-table tours, and a coffee connoisseurs dinner. How does a vacation like this work? Here is a sample itinerary:
During a 3-night stay at a coffee plantation resort you will take a guided tour of the organic coffee farm and roasting house, followed up by a coffee cupping. You will visit the town of Heredia’s central market, learning about its exotic fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs, and partake in a full-day Sibu Chocolate workshop.
The next 3 nights are spent in the cloud forest near Cerro Chirripo Volcano while staying at the boutique Monte Azul mountain resort while dining with farm-to-table chef Esteban Acuna. You will visit a sustainable home dairy where you will learn to milk a cow before getting involved in the cheese making process. You can also attend a soap making class as well as learn to make homemade tamales, attend a yoga session or get an in-room spa treatment. Monte Azul sits on a 125-acre preserve allowing you to hike the forest along several trails.
This is a small tour, so space is very limited. Latin American Escapes is our destination management company that will lead you on this tour and be your hands on guides.
