Gluten Free & Fabulous

Did you know that Costa Rica’s national diet is naturally free of gluten?

Plantains, rice, fresh fruits, beans, and vegetables. Corn rather than wheat is king. By creating dishes rooted in local ingredients and culinary traditions, we’ve managed to become experts in gluten-free cuisine.

We understand that eating on vacation can be scary. Many restaurants cannot guarantee your safety.

That’s why in 2014, we initiated a fully certified Gluten-Free Program.

The kitchen and dining room staff of both our restaurants are fully certified by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA). A first for a resort in Central and South America.

For our menus, we consulted with Monica Glass, a top US pastry chef who has celiac disease. We welcomed celiac bloggers to our hotel to share their experiences too.

We’re proud of having pioneered an environment where you can dine safely. You won’t feel restricted by limited options or uninspired offerings either.

If you have Celiac or a gluten intolerance, that means less time worrying, and more time cultivating that chill vacation vibe.

A Gluten-Free Paradise!

“My family has to eat gluten-free due to Celiac Disease and recently stayed at the resort and ate nowhere but the resort for 5 days/nights. What a treat! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone in my family stayed perfectly healthy.”
