Food in Costa Rica. What’s unusual?

posted in: News, Travel 0

Costa Rica has a lot of imported goods. This means that here you can find almost everything you need, the only question is the price. But there are still some points for which it is better to be prepared. For example, if you are a black tea lover, it will not be easy to find it. It would seem, what could be easier?! I’m sure it is somewhere, but I have not yet found pure black tea. Basically, these are various green, herbal, teas in bags with different additives. Well, that’s not a big problem. Food in Costa Rica very interesting and unusual for foreigners.

As far as traditional local dishes are concerned, it is safe to say that Costaitans are big fans of rice in any form. It can even be desserts. Have you tried rice, which can be found among other sweets as a dessert at a birthday party? Quite unusual, but tasty enough. Traditional Costa Rican food may not be familiar to foreigners. Like meat wrapped in banana leaves or rice and beans for breakfast. Or, even more unusual, bananas are fried with cheese or cooked as a side dish for meat.

And this is perhaps the favorite of all Costa Ricans, a black bean and spiced snack. Unusual but tasty.

Costa Ricans love to take this snack on meetings with friends and eat it with something very similar to our chips. The main thing here is not to forget that these are still beans and not to overdo it with the quantity =)


There are many vegetables and fruits here, and all of them are delicious, juicy, and fresh. Still in a country with such a climate! Supermarkets have a really large assortment and reasonable prices for everything that can be produced in this country. In Costa Rica’s shops, you can find a variety of exotic fruits and enjoy them every day. For healthy diets and vegetarians, this is a food paradise. Here it is quite possible to enjoy delicious and, importantly, healthy products.

I can say with confidence that you will be delighted to visit this wonderful country and taste food in Costa Rica.


In general, Costa Rica has everything to eat well and tasty. There are some peculiarities, as in any country, but you can always buy the products you are used to and cook something to your taste.

Perhaps there is nothing more surprising and impressive than discovering new countries, new cultures, cities, uniquely beautiful places. Travel is life. This is what always gives strength, energy, and desire to go forward. It's so hard to wake up early for work, but it's so easy - to the airport or to the train =) I am also a fan of psychology. I believe that it is impossible to have a harmonious relationship with yourself and with the people around you, without understanding anything about our inner world. Many world-famous authors set out their thoughts in books, they are very smart and talented people who share their knowledge and experience. There is nothing easier than buying a book and learning something new from the geniuses of psychology. Our feelings and emotions are very multifaceted. We all perceive the world in different ways and we need to be able to respect and understand this. Everything that we wish will certainly come true, you need to be able to dream about it correctly. The universe does not limit anyone. It is full of supplies for each of us. Psychology is a very important science for humanity. The more the world develops, the more people understand this. The more we are tolerant to ourselves and to all people, the more good there will be in our lives and in the whole world. Development is the driving force behind humanity. We simply cannot afford to stand still, otherwise, our life loses all meaning. Every day, discovering something new for ourselves, we move forward towards our goals.
