Costa Rican food

Here is a traditional meal of typical Costa Rican food. This lunch featured fish, rice, and beans, garnished with a grilled banana, vegetables and sprouts, served on a banana leaf. It is more common for the rice and beans to be served together, rather than in the pastry shell holding the beans in this presentation.

This lunch was included as part of a hiking tour of Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Tour excursion operators pick up tourists in Tamarindo, drive them to the park, guide them on hiking trails, then stop for lunch on the way back to Tamarindo. I thought it might be of interest to post a photo for those who visit Tamarindo and might wonder what type of lunch may be included with the various tours that are offered for tourists.

This lunch was served at a large, mostly outdoor restaurant across the road very close to the entrance to the international airport in Liberia.

This looks very familiar. I believe I had a similar lunch once or twice on my visit. It looks simple but, is very tasty especially after a rigorous hike.

Hi David. We have been to CR several times and have had meals on both ends of the quality measure. This looks appetizing. And a very nice presentation.
