Food in Costa Rica is second only to the country’s beauty. Known for its use of fresh ingredients, like fruits and vegetables, the cuisine in Costa Rica is generally on the mild side... [More]
As I travel around Costa Rica, I meet so many interesting foreign people, and I learn all about their homelands and their customs. Each culture is different, as I eat, drink and travel with these visitors, there is one topic that I see come up pretty often: when and where to tip, and how much. Tipping is a fairly new idea in Costa Rica; it has really only been a few decades that it has been part of our culture...[More]
My job is NOT terrible. Not in any way. I get to hop around Costa Rica, trying out all of the food, drinks, dances, and adventures that my country has to offer so that I can report the good, bad, and ugly back to my loyal readers. It’s the sweet life, for sure. I was so excited when I heard that my next assignment was to stay at Palma Real Hotel & Casino for a few days...[More]

It might be the best part of travel. Yeah, I said that. Here are some of the most popular foods from abroad. I dare you to get to the end and not be drooling... [More]
Guanacaste is the most visited region in Costa Rica, and for good reason! While I spend a lot of my time traveling the country, I always find myself coming back to the province for its warm coastal waters and tranquil beaches. Lush tropical forests hang along the sandy shoreline here, making it the perfect place for both families and couples. If you want to visit Playa Potrero, there's no better Costa Rica hotel to stay in than Bahia del Sol. Located on the second safest beach of Costa Rica, this hotel features everything a traveler may want in a resort. I recently stayed here and loved it so much that I want to share my experience with you!...[More]
If you're like me, you love trying new foods when you travel! Getting to taste the cuisine of a certain country or region tells a lot about the people who live there, the culture and beliefs. I was very excited when I found out I was getting the opportunity to go to one of my favorite places in Costa Rica: Que Rico Arenal Restaurant. Situated right in front of the gorgeous Arenal Volcano, Que Rico offers a unique dining experience with sprawling views and yummy dishes...[More]
The pristine white sands and calm waters of Playa Samara may be among the top reasons why it is a travelers' hub (I know I love hanging out here), but the eclectic and local cuisine offered in this region is just as attractive. There are plenty of Costa Rican all-inclusive resorts in the region where you can just walk to and from your hotel room. From fresh exotic fruits and organic farms to carefully crafted dishes served beach side, Playa Samara is just as much a foodie's paradise as it is a beach dweller's dream. I may only be a tree frog, but I've hoped my way through Playa Samara quite a few times and noticed the sights and smells of a few popular restaurants. Although I couldn't indulge myself, that doesn't mean you shouldn't!...[More]

When it comes to dining out, Ticos like to keep their options open. Although the food here is almost as diverse as the landscape, many Costa Ricans love Chinese food. In fact, the country has quite a large Chinese population, meaning that there's always some great chow just around the corner. Come with me and find out the best places to grab Chinese cuisine in Costa Rica![More]
