Full description
The best way to learn about a new culture is to learn about what the locals eat. Costa Rica has an amazing cuisine that is healthy, natural, and actually very easy to learn how to cook. Take some of the best local recipes back home with you after this cooking experience. These cooking classes are a great way to get to know other travelers and hang out with a knowledgeable local chef. As soon as you finish cooking, you will be able to sit down to the delicious meal you helped cook up and chat about the "Pura Vida" of Costa Rica. Make sure you have brought your dancing shoes to Costa Rica, because next up you will head to the dance floor to learn how to dance to latin beats. There is no better way to spend an evening in La Fortuna than cooking, eating, and dancing like a local.

An interesting course in which I was able to discover new things even as a passionate cook. Very, very friendly and personable hosts. The salsa course was really fun (also with corona distance rules). It was a very entertaining and fun evening.

was very fun. First they cooked, it was really delicious! And then there was a dance course for 4 dances.

Great family time. The facilitator was very nice, pleasant and understanding. Even the children enjoyed this good time. The preparation of the typical Costa Rican dish was very instructive and very good to taste. The salsa steps were a good time
