3 Eco-Hotels With The Best Gastronomic Options
If you're a food lover this post is for you, discover the top 3 eco-hotels with the best gastronomic options.
I think we can all agree that food is one of the main components when we visit a place. Food is an essential part of when we travel, it gives us culture, tradition, flavor, and happiness. Through food, we can learn about a country's history, traditions, cultural identity and so much more. By learning about a country's local food we can learn about the place we are visiting at a deeper level than simply its iconic landmarks. Personally, I would say that one of my favorite things when traveling is tasting all the exotic new flavors and discovering new things. Food is the one thing that brings people together, it’s a celebration of culture everywhere around the world.
Today we’re going to talk about 3 eco-hotels that offer delightful traditional menus and are known for their prestigious chefs and the variety of food they offer their guests. One of the main sustainable practices of eco-hotels is gastronomy. Most of these types of resorts produce their own food, normally they have a garden where they grow fruit and vegetables and use it for their own benefit. If food can’t be grown they mostly buy local products to support local communities.
