The Costa Rican food is one of the tastiest foods you will ever find in the world, is good, is yummy and you just can’t get enough of it.

The main national dish is the “Gallo Pinto” which is use for breakfast and consists of rice and black beans and it can be combined with eggs, plantain or anything you want. This dish can be found on every inch of the country, so you better tell your agent before he does the Costa Rica travel planning that you want to taste this no matter what.

For lunch, your bets choice is the traditional dish called “casado”. It again consists of rice and beans with a few other companions; I know you are thinking you are getting the same as the breakfast but it taste different, well, because it prepare different.

If you go to the Caribbean, specifically to Limon, you can find something similar but with a better tasty flavor, “it’s called Rice and Beans” and it’s original from that place. The beans and the chicken that goes along with it are cooked with coconut milk to get an original delicious taste that’s impossible to describe. Make sure your Costa Rica travel vacation involves tasting the Limon Rice and Beans, believe me, you won’t regret it.

In taverns, various small dishes named boquitas are served and are tremendous in every aspect. The Boquitas includes patacones with black bean dip, chifrijo whichi is rice and beans with chicharrones, which are fried pork skins, and chimichurri, ceviche and vigorón which is cabbage, chimichurri, yucca, served with a slice of lime. All these dishes are tremendous if you want to join them with a beer or a wine.

If you enjoy the good nature and amazing food, you should come by Costa Rica and live the good life!
