I have been to Costa Rica twice now, both wonderful trips that exceeded my expectations. For those that haven’t been, there is not exactly a distinctive “Tico Cuisine”. Fried plantains, dirty rice, chicken and fruit were the staples of my first trip. Not that there is anything wrong with it, but didn’t come back talking about the food. This time... More

My family spent a week in Costa Rica, and Martha and Donna played a huge role in making the vacation as terrific as it was. I live in New York, and the food they prepared was on par with restaurant meals you'd get here. They have a diverse menu that includes options that showcase Costa Rican food (though I must... More

Having a meal prepared by Donna and Martha was truly a delight. Not only was the food fresh and delicious, but the two women are wonderful to be around. They prepared special meals each night and catered to any food allergies. Half of our group was lactose intolerant, while half weren't so Donna and Martha prepared food so that both... More

Donna is truly a talent. Not only did we have amazing food, both locally sourced and an internationally inspired cuisine, but also menus catered to very diverse needs and preferences (chicken and fish only, meat eaters and lactose intolerant). In addition, she creates an environment that is warm and joyfully spirited. She genuinely loves what she does and it comes... More

Donna runs an amazing operation, tailoring her menus to her clients, and providing both locally sourced and internationally inspired cuisine. We had the pleasure of having our breakfasts and dinners prepared by Donna and Marta for a week while we visited Costa Rica, and there wasn't a single meal I didn't love. Combine that with the absolute JOY they brought... More

Thank you Mike for your beautiful review! Martha and I have become so attached to Mike and the group that accompanied him on this trip. It was like cooking for my family, making sure that everyone was happy and pleased with their food, was priority. I can't wait for your return! More

August 2011 a group of 9 of us went to Playa del Coco and rented a 6,000 s.f. home with a private infinity pool overlooking the ocean. But the highlight of our trip was not the house or amazing scuba diving, but rather the incredible food prepared for us by Donna and Marta. Not only did we have amazing food,... More

We spent a week in a rental house on the Northwest coast of Costa Rica with our grown children. Donna, who owns Sabores del Paraiso, made our vacation. She is a fabulously talented chef who made exquisite three course feasts based on locally available ingredients in our kitchen. She tailored meals to some of our challenged dietary requirements, working with... More
