While other countries talk – Costa Rica walks starting several decades ago when they decided sustainability was more important than funding their standing army.  Budgets were re-directed towards creating an eco-paradise and they confidently expect to be carbon neutral within the next 5 years.


It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth.  Bordered by oceans on two sides, the Caribbean and Pacific, volcanoes, rainforests, rivers, national parks and reserves.  It has an immense biodiversity and is rich with wildlife including sloths, spider monkeys and quetzal birds.


Coffee beans are grown here and just about everything you eat will have been grown locally.  The food is a melange of culinary traditions from Africa, Italy, France and China.

You’ll find a recipe for a traditional bread pudding recipe – Budin – often eaten at Xmas if you click on to Recipes.


Why not join us in September and discover this eco paradise for yourself.
