Tropical Getaway to a Pineapple & Piña Colada Paradise

1.25 hours
Group size
Up to 20 people

Pay a virtual visit to an organic pineapple farm in Costa Rica and learn how to make a piña colada.

Bienvenidos! Welcome to an organic pineapple plantation in northern Costa Rica, where sustainability is both a philosophy and a way of life. Meet Maikol, an organic pineapple farmer and your guide to this corner of paradise. He’ll fill you in on everything you ever wanted to know about this sweet fruit and its origins. Learn how pineapple crops are planted and grown here using eco-friendly practices, and how to tell when they're ripe and ready to be picked. During this Online Escape, expect some practical pointers you can use in your day-to-day life too. Maikol will show you how to find the freshest pineapples at the supermarket, and how to cut pineapple at home to perfect your presentation of those juicy slices. Before this virtual visit comes to an end, you’ll discover how to make a piña colada so you can mix up the taste of the tropics at home anytime.
