Hike & Tour Details

Based on the ideals of water to table and farm to table, the Zancudo Lodge’s Gamefisher restaurant showcases simply the best and freshest gourmet meals imaginable. There is nothing finer than fish bought from our fishing boat directly to the restaurant or organic fruits and vegetables picked on our property just minutes from preparation.

The kitchen staff at the Zancudo Lodge is proudly homegrown and professionally educated. Our menu concept is the brainchild of Chef Cosmo Goss (US 2015 – 30 Under 30 Forbes) who provides on-site semiannual training to our Zancudo crew. Chef Goss masterfully blends local Costa Rican flavors with his innovative cuisine resulting in the creation of a sophisticated yet scrumptious menu especially designed for our most discriminating guests.
