Relaxing, educational, fun!

Just returned from a week long vegan cooking school at Casa Metta. We had the best time. Our lodging, a 'container house' was comfortable, clean and pretty. We enhanced our vegan culinary skills during cooking classes and ate like kings - vegan kings that is. We cooked and ate traditional Costa Rican fare, Mexican, Fusion and more. Our hosts seemed like old friends as we enjoyed the fruits (no pun) of our labors around the dinner table. Oh, and the companion dogs and chickens were neat too!

Pros: beautiful setting, welcoming hosts, cooking classes
Cons: our time at Casa Metta was too short

Casa Metta is a gorgeous hideaway with fantastic views, breathtaking gardens, and a warm and welcoming environment. All my time spent there has been wonderfully relaxing and the food cooked by Wendy and Erich is exquisite. I could not recommend a better place for people to stay in the area, and the pura vida environment is one I would love to share with all my friends and loved ones.

Pros: beautiful atmosphere, healthy cuisine, friendly family people
Cons: not within walking distance to a city
