Tastes of Costa Rica: Food Tour & Cooking Class

Having been picked up from your hotel in Manuel Antonio, you'll set off in the direction of the neighbouring town of Quepos, where you'll begin your food tour at the local market.

Wander between the different food stalls, letting the vibrant colours, enticing smells and mouth-watering tastes of the fresh produce captivate your senses. Advised by your guide, you'll gather the ingredients for the typical Costa Rican meal you'll later prepare in your cooking class.

You'll then be taken inland to the small town of Londres, where you'll chose the last few ingredients from an organic farm before getting settled in the private kitchen, ready to learn how to prepare Costa Rica's most popular recipes.

Guided by expert local chefs, you'll prepare corn tortillasbanana ceviche; rice; chicken in a hearty tomato sauce; and picadillo, a typical dish of ground beef with spices and vegetables, amongst other delicious treats. Make sure to pay attention to the recipes so you can recreate them at home! After cooking up a storm, you'll sit down together to eat the tasty food you've made.

After eating, you'll have free time to explore the farm and stroll along the banks of the Naranjo River. Weather permitting, you might even have the chance to enjoy a refreshing tip in the cool waters.

At the end of your tour and cooking class, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Manuel Antonio.
