Native Fruits

Some of these food pictures I’m double posting but I think they should be grouped together for anyone wanting to learn specifically about the food in Costa Rica

Costa Rican Chicken Empanada

Probably my least favorite food item I got while in Costa Rica, I ordered this having no idea what it was because of the recommendation of a local in La Fortuna as I was ordering. Just a little reminder that not every recommendation will be a good one and you just have to role with it. However, one or two bad recommendations are worth all the great ones you get along the way.

 

I don’t even remember the name of this but almost certain it isn’t a usual Costa Rican dish as I didn’t run into it anywhere else.

Refrescos

Refrescos (frescos) are also extremely popular in the country, they’re a mix of a local fruit with sugar and water (sometimes milk). You can find frescos in just about any fruit flavor including blueberry, strawberry, orange and passion fruit.

 

The San Jose Market – as you can see in the second picture most shops were closed by the time I was heading out

 

The buses to get to and from San Jose are always packed with lines forming at least 30 minutes before departure, the traffic to get there can also be brutal
