Costa Rica travel is synonymous with wildlife and jungle adventures, but Costa Rica is full of culture, cuisine and wonderful people to uncover.

So what is it about Costa Rica that the locals love the most? We asked one of our Costa Rica Travel Directors, Victor, to tell us what he thinks makes our Costa Rica trips so special.

Be My Guest meal at Hacienda Pozo Azul, Costa Rica

To enjoy the special Be My Guest meal that Victor mentions, take a look at our Natural Wonders of Costa Rica trip.

Join a local family, the Quintanas, on their 2000 acre ranch, to learn about the produce that they grow on site. Afterwards, enjoy a traditional Costa Rican lunch inside the family’s home, with fresh fruits and vegetables from the ranch specially prepared for your meal. Delicious.
