Dave and Cindy, we had a wonderful time at Adventure Dining! The view was breathtaking and the whole dining experience will be one we will always remember. We've already shared with family and friends the view of the waterfall, landscaped grounds, gift shop, food, dancing, fireworks and let's not forget Mika, your sweet lab! Thank you so much for everything.... More

My family and I visited Adventure Dining while on vacation. My Family enjoyed the beautiful botanical gardens before our dinner. Being from Texas, USA, we love to be able to see new gardens and lush rainforest. Unfortunately we visited during some rainfall and we were not able to view very many of the wonderful birds that reside in the gardens.... More

Grab a drink and wander around (60+?) acres of tropical rainforest, with paved, wide walking paths, spectacular views and lush plants. Was raining when we visited, so the birds did not visit, but there was so much to see. You can walk a little or... More

With a name like Adventure Dining, the expectations were high. Our family of 4 got picked up at our rental condo and headed out on quite a wild ride up the mountain. Once we arrived, we toured the Pura Vida Gardens. Absolutely beautiful with breathtaking views. The owners Dave and Cindy are fantastic hosts. (We also loved their happy dog... More

If anywhere near the Jaco area, this is a can't miss experience. The ride up the mountain alone was crazy and the scenery when we arrived was amazing.
