I was staying at Albergue Ecológico El Porvenir and also had several meals there. During the day I was usually away, but in the morning it was very convenient to have breakfast before starting daily activities. The food was served on two separate terraces under thatched roofs, surrounded by lush tropical garden and with splendid views of the Vulcán Concepción. On each terrace are a few rustic tables and chairs (both made of tree brances, very beautiful), and hammocks. After the meal I normally moved into hammock to relax and have a coffee or beer, soaking up the magnificent scenery.
I had two breakfasts here. The first one consisted of banana pancakes with honey, lemonade and coffee, while the other day I opted for fruit pancakes with honey, pineaple juice and coffee. After arrival at El Porvenir the first day I was rather tired from the long journey so I decided to take it easy, have lunch and then slowly get use to the new environment. The lunch was really good, two fresh trouts from the lake with carrot, red pepper and cooked potatoes. I rinsed it with a cold Victoria beer and had a good cup of organic coffee after the meal. At the evening I was not particularly hungry so I only had a portion of tostones with white cheese ontop, and slices of fresh tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce. The light dinner was accompanied with another Victoria beer.
All in all, tasty meals at reasonable price and quick and friendly service in a very pleasant surroundings.
