Had a great margarita and a couple great lunches here! Cute little spot right across from the beach and everything on the menu that we tried was great.

We visited Tasty Waves on a Tuesday night. There 2 for 1 tacos were yum! But the real star was their spicy margarita!

Stopped her by chance, while wandering by, mostly because of their humorous and charming signs at roadside! Had a great evening watching karaoke and enjoying amazing tacos!

If you want an American version of Costa Rica this place is for you. Otherwise, steer clear. Average food and one of the worst cocktails I've ever had.

I loved going to the Tasty Waves Cantina, and as it turned out, I went three Tuesdays in a row. The tacos are two for one, that day, and they are all delicious, though I am partial to the pork pulled ones. Max, of the...More

Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream
