The otherwise sleepy seaside village of Puerto Viejo de Limon comes alive more than elsewhere in Costa Rica on special occasions. Christmas, New Year’s and Semana Santa Easter Week are the most festive times by far, but with Earth Day in the mix, April in Puerto Viejo is an even more fascinating place to be for Holy Week, Easter, Passover, bursting at the seams with memorable live musical and moveable feasts.
Ticos and tourists come far and wide to taste the town’s best chefs’ takes on the country’s flavor-rich ingredients. World fusion is the name of the game when it comes to cuisine, and The Lizard King Resort is one such perfectly situated restaurant from which to absorb some of that rich flavor. Even hamburgers are steps above standard BBQ fare when made with Costa Rican grass fed beef, especially when coupled with melted cheese and homemade papas fritas, like this Earth Day weekend special at the Lizard King Resort. Buen provecho!
