Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca

September 7, 2011

The business spotlight this week is on La Botánica Orgánica in Playa Chiquita, six kilometers south of Puerto Viejo. The menu is vegetarian and vegan with gluten-free and raw options. Not only do they offer great, local, fresh food, but they are also good neighbors, maintaining a resource library to help educate folks on sustainability and healthy eating. They are involved in the Playa Chiquita community group, offer their space for community events and workshops at no cost, and work with local providers to keep the economic benefits from their business in Playa Chiquita and the area. 

La Botánica Orgánica offers a big healthy brunch with live music every Sunday and will be celebrating its one-year anniversary Oct. 9 with a big party with live music and a barbecue. For information, email labotanicaorganica@gmail.com or call 2750-0696.
