Nicuesa Lodge celebrates art & culture of Costa Rica
Posted by: PLAYA NICUESA RAINFOREST LODGE
The art and culture of Costa Rica were celebrated recently by guests, staff and visitors at Playa Nicuaest Lodge. In honor of the national holiday, Annexation of Guanacaste Day on July 25, Nicuesa Lodge invited local artisans and a folkloric dance group to entertain hotel guests.
Cultural and art festivals are held at least twice a year at our Costa Rica eco-lodge to celebrate different events.
Lunch served by Nicuesa Lodge's gourmet cooks was a typical Costa Rican meal of arroz con pollo (rice with chicken), salad and black beans. To drink, guests tried a traditional Caribbean beverage called Agua de Sapo, or â€œwater of the frog.â€ Having nothing to do with its name, the beverage basically is a sweet ginger lemonade, made with water, lemon, ginger and raw cane sugar, called tapa dulce. For dessert, guests enjoyed Costa Rica's famous â€œcoconut caramel made fresh at the lodge with coconut grown on the property.
Meals at Nicuesa Lodge areservedin the lodgeâ€™s magnificent two-story tree house-style main lodge building. The open-air dining area gives unobstructed views of the tree canopy (great for wildlife spotting), the forest, beach and ocean.
