The local cooks also serve up delicious dishes made with fresh fish, chicken dishes (their orange/mango chicken with coriander, served with brown and wild rice is one particular favorite) or vegetarian dishes such as Spinach enchiladas and Vegetarian Thai Curry over rice. Enjoy a glass of Organic Wine or Costa Rican Beer with dinner.

The menu is predominantly vegetarian, with organic eggs and dairy, but local, hormone-free chicken and fresh fish are also included, and vegan, gluten-free and other dietary requirements are happily catered to with a little notice.

You will work closely with the staff to ensure your nutritional needs are being met while you cleanse and to ensure you feel grounded and as vibrant as possible.
