This restaurant is on a tiny dirt road filled with potholes and rocks. If you are driving yourself, make sure you have 4X4, or that you are comfortable driving on very rough, winding, rocky road. We were afraid of getting a flat tire on our...More

The restaurant at El Cabito (they also have accommodations) overhangs an awesome cliff and faces West, so if you're making the trek out there, make sure to do it in time for sunset. It is quite a trek. Although I know some backpackers hike there...More

A real challenge to get to, over a dirt road through the jungle to a cliff overlooking the sea, but absolutely worth it. We found this restaurant-bar filled with "expats" from a variety of European and Latin American countries. A real experience!

Looking for a romantic dinner - this is a must. Open deck, thatched roof, hanging off the cliff, at the end of a dirt road and with scrumptious seafood. Can't be beat!
