“The vegan community is growing and with it the need for a hospitality experience that caters to them. Costa Rica is a predominantly meat-centric country and as vegans, we struggled,” Karen Salstein Harris said. “With such an abundance of fresh ingredients at our doorstep, we were driven to create a plant-based destination for like-minded travelers visiting this beautiful country.”
