Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat supports and motivates many neighbours to participate in tourism related activities. In the close by community of Linda Vista there are many Costa Rican señoras with beautiful rustic rural kitchens excited to teach and share with visitors.
We can organize a cooking class for any meal or just as a snack between meals. The ladies offering the classes are very hygienic and have been trained in food safety and handling.
