ORIGINS offers private transportation service to and from both Liberia Airport (LIR) and San Jose Airport (SJO).

Costa Rican Cuisine 

The gastronomy, led by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Luc L’Hourre, is equally as impressive as the stunning views from the restaurant – which is essentially the center of the property. A culinary wellness experience offers varying menus each day that showcase fresh ingredients from local farmers or the onsite organic garden to ensure each dish captures the spirit of the region. 

The cuisine at ORIGINS is all about savoring each individual flavor in every single dish, so the chefs use fresh ingredients from the property for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – all of which can be included if you'd like for an additional fee. Guests will enjoy a different menu every day that's based on the ingredients available. The property restaurant is therefore ideal for foodies with adventurous tastebuds since every dish is unique; however, for pickier eaters, the chefs will create a special menu that takes dietary restrictions and preferences into account!
