Affordable compared to most places in this area. There is a Tico version of Tabasco, which I am in love with.

We had a hard time deciding, had enchiladas stuffed with chicken and red sauce and a order of the wonderful bean dip. The chips and salsa were terrific.

So was walking towards Outback from the hotel when I spy Tacontento Cantina Mexicana. I figure let's see what Mexican food in Costa Rica tastes like. Well I should have kept walking. If you like Mexican food, this is not it. No spice. Hardly any...More
