The writer and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said:
"A bad herb is a plant whose virtues have not yet been found".
Yes, plants can have an effect on both our physical and psychological well-being, which is why at TACACORI EcoLodge we have set aside a special WELLNESS programme dedicated to them. First of all, plants can help us manage our emotions and participate in our relaxation.
In herbal tea, infusion, essential oil, cosmetology, food supplement or most pleasantly in gourmet gastronomy ... There are many ways to take plants to get the benefits!
THE VIRTUES OF PLANTS AGAINST STRESS
Plants are our allies in many situations, and have been for a very long time! A stressful situation can be better dealt with, if the need arises, by some of these plants, in particular adaptogenic plants. Their relaxing and soothing benefits are well known, and they are particularly useful in the face of stress.
AN IMMERSIVE WALK TO THE ETHNO BOTANICAL GARDEN TO LEARN AND BE AMAZED
For 30 years, a plant lover has accumulated one of the largest collections of herbs, plants and flowers in Central America in a huge garden of 8 hectares. It is a reference for doctors, herbalists, botanists, tourists and all plant lovers in Costa Rica.
A two-hour immersive walk to discover the history of plants, their medicinal and culinary virtues, discover plants with essential oils, recognise tropical flowers, the secrets of natural dyes, answer your questions...
For this morning activity, you can choose between this educational tour full of anecdotes and stories (at an extra charge) or simply spend a few hours walking around the garden and meditating on the view, the smells and the beauty of nature.
As the plants are marked with symbols that inform their uses, such as medicinal, colouring, food, toxic, culinary, craft, ornamental, wood, perfume and more... even in the stand-alone version, you will learn and you will see it is exciting!
Finally you will discover the thematic terraces, just before taking a lunch break in the restaurant where you can taste the exquisite and original menu of the week prepared directly "From the vegetable garden to your plate" with creativity and beauty.
HEALTHY, LOCAL AND ORGANIC FOOD
Soliciting our senses allows us to reconnect with our physiological needs, but also to rediscover an intensity in the pleasure of eating.
Let us take you on a gastronomic journey.
A 5-course tasting menu concocted by the passionate Chef who will introduce you to the concept of "from the vegetable garden to your plate for the pleasure of the senses" with healthy, local and organic food.
Depending on the products available in the garden you have just visited, the menus vary in flavours, textures and colours. Day after day, the menu follows the movement of Nature and the Chef's inspiration. Delicate steams, dishes enhanced by vegetable juices, light but rich in flavour... and then some flower petals: good, beautiful and healthy.
