Passed by Veronica's place in search of a smoothie on our last day in Puerto Viejo which was a lucky chance. Her daughter Vernie has a shop below and makes delicious smoothies. The restaurant above serves only vegetarian, vegan ans raw food and the menu looked sublime! We saw an advert for a traditional Caribbean breakfast at Veronica's house so on our final morning we paid $5 for an amazing local breakfast with Veronica and her family. Incredible green plantain porridge, fire bread and beans, homemade jam and fresh fruit were served and we had great conversation with Veronica learning about her work and life. She also offers five day tours of the area and her farm which if we had had more time we would have loved to go to. She also plans to open a hostel by her restaurant and huge efforts were going in making beds and everything for the rooms so if you are in need of a dorm or private room do go stay and support Veronica!
