Costa Rica Cooking Classes

“The calculus of aging offers us two options: We can live a shorter life with more years of disability, or we can live the longest possible life with the fewest bad years. As my centenarian friends showed me, the choice is largely up to us.” – Dan Buettner

Costa Rica is only 2000 miles away from United States, but it is way ahead in longevity, our country has a special place call Nicoya Peninsula where living 100 years is something very comun.

According to BlueZones Newsletter;

"Costa Rica is economically secure and has excellent health care. But other factors are at play: One is the “plan de vida,” or reason to live, which propels a positive outlook among elders and helps keep them active. Another is a focus on family and a special ability to listen and laugh. Nicoyan centenarians frequently visit with neighbors, and they tend to live with families and children or grandchildren who provide support, as well as a sense of purpose."
About our food the article says:
"Eating fewer calories appears to be one of the surest ways to add years to your life. Nicoyans eat a light dinner early in the evening. For most of their lives, Nicoyan centenarians ate a traditional Mesoamerican diet highlighted with the “three sisters” of agriculture: squash, corn, and beans."

We are also convinced that food is an important key to live healthy and longer, so Jacamar Naturalist Tours have design an special 'cooking experience' where you can enjoy and learn more about the secret of longevity.
