About the experience

At Sandra's house, you will meet 3 generations of artists whose life revolves around hosting people in their home. Their house is located just outside of town down a dirt road where life is calm and quiet. Sandra will invite her 72 year old mother to teach you the traditional practice of making tortillas by hand, an experience that is being lost rapidly in Costa Rica. Feel free to ask questions about this cross-generational activity, which Sandra’s mother began 65 years ago. Get your hands on some fresh corn powder and see how round you can get your patties. Then sit down to enjoy a traditional Tico plate with some hot tortillas! Before you go, check out Sandra’s paintings, Pablo’s woodwork, and the rest of the family’s artistic talents!

What's provided

Host will provide a meal, coffee, hot homemade tortillas, and good conversation!

What your should bring
