Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

One of the 7 Blue Zones

Hacienda del Sol is very fortunate about many things.

We have an amazing team of people whom are naturals creating life changing and rejuvenating experiences for our guests. We have some of the most powerful superfoods on the planet growing ornamentally in our gardens. We have a menu that forever shatters the notion that healthy food can’t be mouth watering. A salt water pothole of a pool that softens the armours created by daily stress. But one of the things we are the most fortunate about is our location. Not only are we surrounded by unspoilt Guanacaste dry forest and gorgeous, undeveloped beaches less than a kilometer away, but we are located in the largest of the only 5 blue zones in the world. Blue zones are geographical areas with the highest concentration of centenarians. People here live past 100 at 10 times the average. And it is not just living, it is 100+ years of quality living. Science might still not fully comprehend why this is, but our souls grasp this the second we step into it.

It just feels good being here! Most of our guests feel happy and healthier just being here, and we maximize this with daily practices of Yoga,walking, hiking,and just plain delicious and healthy eating.

  • The great debate going down @haciendadelsolcr: do these qualify as tacos 🌮?? We say yes, but some say no. But what really makes a taco a taco!? Please weigh it here! Maybe it’s the lack of tequila on the side!? Chia flax gluten free #raw #keto shell, cashew #vegan cheese, kale (from our garden), and grilled portobellos! #wholefoods

  • So many of you have asked us for the recipe for the “burger buns” 😋😋
It’s a little labour intensive but totally worth it!

INGREDIENTS😋
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* 1 ½ cup almond meal
* 1 cup coconut meat blended with 1 cup of water to create a smooth consistency
* 4 tbsp ground chia seed
* ¼ cup flax seed meal
* 2 cups ground coconut  flour (ground to make a flour)
* 1 tablepsoon olive oil
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
INSTRUCTIONS
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Grind the almonds into a meal.
2. Blend the 1 cup coconut meat  with 1 cup water until smooth and add the mixture to the almond mill
3. In a vita mix grind the chia seeds with the flax seeds and add the dry mixture to the coconut and almond mixture
4. Grind the dried coconut in the vita-mix to make a flour, then add it to the other mixture
5. Place parchment paper on a hard flat surface and press the burger bun “dough” evenly onto the parchment paper. Using a hard edged round cookie cutter, cut out the round shapes. Discard the extra dough. Place the burger bun rounds in the dehydrator for 24 hours or until they are firm. Do not let them get too crispy otherwise they will break when you bite into the burger.
