COOKING LESSONS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN LOCAL DISHES

At San Isidro we operate our cooking classes more like an open invitation to our guests to accompany us in the kitchen to help prepare one of the lodge lunches or dinners. Depending on your interest level, be hands-on, or simply observe… your choice! This has become an increasingly popular activity at the lodge as it not only teaches our guests about the local products and how to prepare them, but also makes it possible to interact with folks from the surrounding communities that work with us...
