An ideal moment to remember old times, how our grandparents used to live, and to breathe their culture and traditions. We begin the tour at the “Trapiche” (mill), known as the place where the process of extracting the juice of the sugar cane happened long ago. In this tour, we can observe how an ox tied to a yoke makes a “needle” turn, so the cane can fit inside the mill, and this how the juice is obtained.
As a part of the experience, we will taste slices of sugar cane and its juice, “tapa de dulce” (raw sugar), and of course the sugar cane juice. After we try the sweetest thing, it’s time to go to a place that will immediately take us back to the ancient times of old ranches that belonged to families from Guanacaste; a space of culture and learning “La Casa del Sabanero” (The Sabanero Farm).
We will taste the delicious traditional meal of Guanacaste, as we observe how the “tanelas”, “empanaditas”, and “rosquillas” are baked on a wood oven. All these are prepared with corn, just as our grandmas do!
Have you imagined how to make a tortilla? Well, this is the place where you will learn. The women at “La Casa del Sabanero” will teach you how to make them just as all people do in Guanacaste! Finally, along with the “tanelas”, “empanaditas”, “rosquillas”, the tortillas, and cheese, we will drink a delicious coffee or natural fruit juice.
