Had dinner last night at this little spot just south of the main road. Just steps from the beach. Lots of food! Everything tasted fresh. Easy parking.

I have been there many times. If you want real Costa Rican food on the beach this is your place. It is an open air super casual place that serves authentic and delicious food. Prices are super reasonable.
