Dive into the exotic tastes of Caribbean Costa Rica on this exploration of the region's vibrant and colorful food culture. Tuck into classics like rice and beans with coconut milk, and try new flavors like patacón—a dish made with green plantain. You can chat with local cooks to find out more about the region's culinary heritage. Team up with your guide in Puerto Viejo, and go on foot to scope out the area's best eats. With six different food samplings along the route, we will stop at small local restaurants for bowls of rich rondón—seafood soup—bite into delicate pieces of chicken cooked with coconut milk, and save room for a sweet-tooth-satisfying dessert of plantintá—a pastry filled with sweet plantain, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Along the way, you'll learn how other cultures have influenced the country's cuisine, and get tips on other places to eat around town before we part ways and you continue your culinary adventures on your own.
