I want to share with all of you my wonderful vegetarian adventure in CR.
I was surprised to find the veggie options in this country.
Eating rice, beans and fries is not the only option. I found two great places for veggies and spend my whole vacation there.
The first is the Samasati retreat close to the Caribbean coast.
It is a wonderful place for your body, mind and spirit. They offer Yoga classes to everyone, in the middle of the rain forest, with perfect soundtrack of falling rain, birds and insects. The food is good veggie home cooking. The staff is very helpful. There are a lot of options for touring around. We did Totugero beach, Chuita, Punta Uva and other great places where you can see many animals, birds and reptiles.
The place has great view of the rain forest.
I felt like Im far away from civilization, on my own in a magical place.
It was a good preparation for the second place, which is a 100% vegetarian resort.
The hotel called Lands in Love, and it is located on the road from San Ramon to Arenal volcano. Built by a group of 20 vegetarian who came especially to Costa Rica with their 30 dogs and 50 cats to create a veggie resort and to live in harmony with the nature. They have a pet hotel and a large adventure center where I did canopy tour, rafting and horseback riding.
The food was very good, with many different international veggie dishes:
Awesome veggie burger, lasagna, pad thai, israeli humus, European, Japanese and Chinese.
The staff was very happy to host me- a veggie guest and to offer me their veggie menu, as well as many special vegan dishes that are available upon request to make a good healthy vacation. The guests are invited to cook their best dishes.
A place which is dedicated to the healthy veggie way of life, protecting the animals and the forest and living in harmony with nature should be known.
Costa Rica is like paradise on earth and with the veggie options your vacation will be complete.
If you know of more places like that, dont keep it to yourself, tell everybody about them.
Thank you for reading- spread the word!
