You’ll begin your San Jose food tour in a popular local area named Barrio Among, located near the centre of San Jose city. Here, your local guide will meet you and prepare you for a feast of food tastings — enough for a hearty dinner!
You’ll get to try a variety of mouthwatering treats, all served from locally loved eateries, unique specialty food stores, and family-owned organic shops. And of course, being in Costa Rica, we have to stop at a place that’s famous for its specialty coffee. You’ll get to learn about all the foods you’re trying, straight from the charismatic entrepreneurs, chefs, and local artisans who prepare and preserve these cultural traditions. Best of all, you’ll bypass the tourist traps and go straight to the eateries that locals frequent.
Some of the stops on this food adventure will include a very popular coffee tasting shop, where you can pick from 20 different coffee varieties; a favourite family-owned eatery serving soul-warming authentic Costa Rican food; and specialty restaurants offering vegetarian dishes, seasonal snacks, and local drinks.
But we’re not just eating on this tour! Between all the tastings, you’ll learn about the country’s political past, experience its bustling commercial hub, and explore the charming tree-lined streets of Old San Jose.
