My Girlfriend and I, with her brother and his wife, were in Jaco for two weeks vacation and as one of our special tours we went to adventure Dining for Valentine's Day. There was a little misunderstanding with the timing and reason for the start time. But once we arrived Cindy and Dave were more than gracious and allowed us... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Adventure Dining along with 20 close friends and family. It was one of the most beautiful, memorable, and fun evenings of my life. We have enjoyed Adventure Dining on many occasions in the past - it never fails to impress us because it is an absolutely magical place. The food... More

The botanic gardens and views over the jungle and towards the beach are a must too see. Food was good and the hosts very nice. It is totally worth the money ($105 per person). This gem is a once in a lifetime experience. They also have an open bar so you just help yourself. Highly recommended.

After trekking to the waterfall (very hard work) we stumbled across this trip. We were collected from the hotel in an air conditioned mini bus and taken to the gardens late afternoon to wander around, admire the stunning vistas, and watch the sun slowly setting. We were then taken by our lovely hosts for dinner, all cooked and served on... More

This dining adventure was an awesome experience. The garden walk and beautiful views are well worth the travel time. David and Cindy, the host and hostess, are wonderful people and a delight to visit with. Thank you for making our special family vacation even more special!

Everything from the beautiful gardens to the dinner to the atmosphere to the host and hostess was top notch. The view was truly amazing. We were made to feel right at home. So glad that... More

We really enjoyed a great experience at Adventure Dining. The owners greeted our group of 20 and allowed us to walk their incredible gardens. We were offered several appetizers and all were delicious. Despite the humidity, the crackers were tasty and crisp. The rest of the meal was equally enjoyable and we learned a lot about Costa Rican culture from... More

We spend two months in Jaco every year and when friends come to visit we consider this the most special evening we can show them. We have been there many times and it never fails to wow us. The dining adventure begins at an hour that seems far too early for dinner but you will enjoy every minute starting with... More

For twelve years we've been bringing 15 family members, friends, pre-med students I'm mentoring, athletes I'm mentoring as we help the new CR lacrosse team, and their relationship partners for three weeks to Costa Rica. We travel all over the country and end up just south of Jaco for tours, relaxation and fellowship. We always spend our final evening at... More

We were looking for a special dining experience while in Costa Rica. Boy did we find it. We were picked up promptly at 4:00 by a driver and chauffeured to a spectacular botanical garden (Pura Vida). David greeted us warmly and we were instructed to enjoy the gardens before heading a short distance to the restaurant. Upon arriving at the... More
