Coconuts are known for their great versatility, as evidenced by many traditional uses, ranging from food to cosmetics including art, hand craft and industry.
The coconut provides a nutritious source of meat, juice, milk, and oil base to prepare delicious dishes that have fed and nourished populations around the world for generations.
At Aventura Coco Dulce, we have gathered local traditions and techniques on how to choose and open coconuts, to learn about the importance of coconut in local life and prepare sweet recipes based on coconut and other typical Costa Rican products.
This adventure is an invitation to our Casita del Coco (coconut cottage) to share Panela, Coconut and cinnamon, the Costa Rican coffee tradition in the house of a friend who teaches us her secret and simple recipes to make coconut cajeta (candy) and bread, a space to talk about tradition and flavor.
The invitation also includes, coconut butter and regional coffee tasting and the explanation on how cold and hot coconut oil is made.
