Drinking & Dining

The perfect Costa Rica vacation requires good food and drink; not to worry: we’ve got you covered!

When it comes to the perfect Costa Rica vacation, we understand the importance of good food, good wine, and refreshing cocktails, as well as mocktails. Yes, we love the breathtaking Arenal Volcano views, the surrounding nature, and all the excitement of eco-adventure that Costa Rica has to offer; but, let’s be honest: without a great meal and a delicious drink, at the end of the day, it’s just another vacation. With typical Costa Rican cuisine on offer, our chefs have created a menu that is deliciously mouth watering and awesomely authentic.

Service, presentation, ambiance, and most importantly, excellent food and drink; these things, and more, are here to make your Costa Rica vacation all that it can be.
