Fine dining in Costa Rica

Prepare for some gratuitous food porn.

Yes, in Costa Rica, like most of my travels, eating was central. Literally, days were spent meticulously planning and researching where or what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Below are some of the highlights from our trip. I hope you enjoy.

Oh my! You dined at my very good friend's restaurant, Cafe Organico! You made it before me...I'm very jealous. Thanks so much for the pictures of Ozlem's food. I haven't seen dishes from her in a while and they look scrumptious.

You should definitely visit! It was literally one of the highlights of my trip.

It was recommended to me by another Integrative Nutrition grad, Dagmar, who teaches yoga in Montezuma.

I am interested in learning more about macrobiotics and creating healthy and yummy meals for my family. I live in Nosara, Costa Rica for surfing and a healthy life. Do you know of anyone who specializes in macrobiotics in Nosara?

Hi Aimee,

Unfortunately, I do not know of anyone who specializes in Macrobiotics in the Nosara area.

Have you inquired at the Nosara Yoga Institute or at the Omega center?
