Hello my name is Lidiana Rojas and I am part of a small Costa Rican Family of 4 members: Edison, Aaron and my husband Eddie. We are eager to progress and improve, Edison loves sports and he is also our guide and translator, Aaron studies during the day and in the afternoons he helps us prepare dinner.
My husband Eddie likes to cook typical meals so as not to lose our traditions, he also loves and protects nature.
We have 2,500 endangered trees that we have reforested.
I take care of the administrative and responsible part that everything is correct in that area, I also love to share with people and make them feel at home, which is our main objective, a peasant family that wants to show customs with great affection to our visitors .

    This cooking class was definitely a highlight of our trip. The class takes place in a beautiful outdoor kitchen surrounded by a garden. Lidiana and her husband do a tremendous job of making you feel welcome. They give you a tour of their garden before the cooking starts. During our walk through the garden we saw many birds including two macaws and a toucan. They also have a three toed sloth living in their garden right now named Flash. We cooked a traditional chicken and rice dish that was so delicious. After dinner they took us for a walk around their property and we were able to see red eyed tree frogs and some over frogs living around a pond they have. It was such a relaxing night filled with good food, wildlife, and conversation. I highly recommend if you're looking for a cooking class in the La Fortuna area!

    My fiance and I loved it! We really enjoyed touring and tasting herbs and food from their garden. The cooking experience was so personable, the food was amazing, and it was such a warm, welcoming, intimate experience. Lidiana and her husband put so much love and care into what they do, and it showed in both the experience and the food.

    This was my favorite activity in La Fortuna by far! This experience really gives you a taste of local culture, especially compared to the other touristy activities in La Fortuna. The meal was also one of the best meals I had in Costa Rica, but what really made the experience so special was how kind and great Lidiana and her husband are. They were the best hosts that one could ask for and I would definitely go again!

    Eddie and Lidiana were wonderful hosts. They were kind and generous and we were welcomed like family. Their property is beautiful and we saw so many plants and animals while we were there. The food was absolutely delicious, as were the drinks. We can’t wait to make the recipe at home. Thank you Lidiana and Eddie for sharing this experience with us !!

    Eddie and Lidiana are 2 of the most amazing people I've ever met. Meeting and talking to them were well worth the experience alone. I truly feel like we made 2 new friends. They're farm was so beautiful. Great views, great garden and fantastic food. You can meet the sloth that resides in their back yard (better than any sloth trail.) As well as beautiful birds and very cool frogs. This is an experience you should not miss. Can't wait to come back and see my amigos again. Thank you so much!
