We are committed to building the local health and wellness community in Costa Rica through product sourcing, education and community events.

Clean and Green

We source the highest quality certified organic, natural and local products and food ingredients. We are committed to your health!

Organic First Grocery

Finding organic and wholesome foods can be challenging in Costa Rica. It is especially important because of the prolific use of Round-up and other harmful pesticides, banned in many countries. That is why we go out of our way to source products from certified organic farmers and food producers, and where this is not possible, from producers that have been committed to not using pesticides.

Organic Restaurant

Lead by our experienced chef Alonso, from Guanacaste, our fully licensed restaurant offers a wide selection of casual fare, pizzas with organic kamut or fresh organic yuca crust, burgers, sandwiches, vegan delights, seafood, and organic-fed, free-range chicken. We offer a selection of organic wine, artisan beer and hard kombucha on tap. 

Hot Drinks plus Superfood Elixirs

We offer a wide selection of hot beverages including locally roasted organic coffee, a selection of certified organic teas, and Anima Mundi elixirs and drink boosters, loaded with adaptogenic plant medicines, such as the Mushroom Mocha, Golden Sun Milk, Golden Moon Milk and Dirty Rose Chai. Sweetened with organic honey or stevia, and served with organic coconut milk, organic soy milk or fresh homemade organic hemp milk or almond milk.

Golden Moon Milk Ingredients:

Turmeric,Reishi, Ashwagandha, , Lucuma, Blue Lotus, Vanilla, Cardamom, Lavender, Black Pepper.
