All inclusive Meals at VBO

Meals included, but not just any meals!

Our aim at Villa Buena Onda is to create a personalized dining experience. We provide three a la carte meals per day as part of your stay. Our Chef uses fresh local ingredients to create a menu that is a fusion of authentic local cuisine with an international twist. The Chef will also offer recommendations and can make dishes to order (based on availability). Although we do not provide room service, if you would like your breakfast in your room then we will happily accommodate this.

We also offer Costa Rican cooking classes free of charge, where our chef will take you into the kitchen and help you prepare traditional dishes. This is a hugely popular activity and we highly recommend you ask about it.

Alcoholic drinks are available at extra cost, as well as a snack menu throughout the day.

We are happy to meet special dietary requirements with advanced notice.
