A must do in Costa Rica
samantha_f, Mar 2023
This is a must do in La Fortuna. The space is breathtaking (we saw multiple toucans right in the trees around us) on a second story kitchen area. Scott is an amazing chef and instructor. We learned how to make Costa Rican mojitos, guacamole, ceviche, chicken empanadas. A special banana flambé for dessert- perfection. He also has a dog rescue on the property which made it even more fun. My husband even loved it and he doesn’t normally enjoy cooking! Thank you Scott!
