Embark on a nostalgic journey through time, where you can relive the past and immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of our grandparents.
Start your adventure at the renowned "Trapiche" mill, where the age-old process of extracting sugar cane juice unfolds before your eyes. Watch as an ox, tethered to a yoke, tirelessly turns a "needle" to facilitate the cane's entry into the mill, revealing the secrets of juice extraction.
As part of this immersive experience, indulge in slices of sugar cane, raw sugar known as "tapa de dulce," and, of course, freshly squeezed sugar cane juice.
After savoring these sweet delights, transport yourself to a bygone era reminiscent of Guanacaste's old ranches, as you visit "La Casa del Sabanero" (The Sabanero Farm). Here, you'll have the opportunity to savor a traditional Guanacaste meal featuring delights like "tanelas," "empanaditas," and "rosquillas," all baked in a wood oven and prepared with corn, just as our grandmothers did.
Ever wondered how to make a tortilla? Well, "La Casa del Sabanero" is your chance to learn. The skilled women at this cultural haven will teach you the art of making tortillas, just as it's done in Guanacaste.
To complete this memorable experience, accompany your "tanelas," "empanaditas," "rosquillas," tortillas, and cheese with a delightful cup of coffee or natural fruit juice. This journey through time and culture promises to leave you with a deeper appreciation of the rich heritage of Guanacaste.
