Welcome to Veronica´s Place
Your home away from home!
We are a friendly Caribbean family of Puerto Viejo de Limon, Costa Rica
My name is Veronica Gordon. I am married and have five kids who are now grown up. We grew up in a little town on the Caribbean Coast in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. My descendants and family are Jamaican. We are very proud of our culture.
I grew up in a Christian family were I learned about natural healing and that we need to take care of our mind, body, soul and to find the balance between the three of them.
My grandparents and parents were naturalist, which means that they always worked with plants and herbs. When somebody is sick or has an allergy, they cure them with their knowledge of the plants, trees and herbs. They passed it on to us and my husband and I continue to pass our home remedies (like fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables) to our children and to other people who want to change their lives in a healthy way.
All these are my inspiration along with the bible and nature that show me that my body is the temple of the holy spirit were God abides. The sun, the water, the air, exercise, making time and the trust of God are the law of nature.
My husband and I still live in this small town in Puerto Viejo where everybody knows us and where we do community service for other people.
I am one of the few people in Puerto Viejo offering a restaurant with Vegetarian - Vegan and Raw food. I would like to promote healthy living so more people from all over the world can come and taste my delicious food!!
Most people know about us through our restaurant, but we also offer other products and services, including living accomodations, Caribbean cooking classes, health consultations, volunteer projects, tours of local attractions, breakfast with our family, and a variety of natural products for sale.
