A Touch of Mexico in Downtown Nicoya

Posted: September 29, 2017 - 14:38

I've lived in Guanacaste for a little more than three years, and ever since then I've been in search of Mexican restaurants that sell the original al pastor-style meat, spinning on a spit, with a pineapple on top: as God intended it!   Those closest... MORE

Smoky Love In Nosara

Posted: August 26, 2017 - 12:08

I found the Salty Pelican because a friend recommended it to a friend who told me that I had to go. As I was arriving in a tuk-tuk, I figured this would be a typical American restaurant: rock and roll, high-backed chairs, a screen showing a baseball... MORE

Lingering and Eating in El Cafecito

Posted: July 29, 2017 - 12:45

There are no windows or bars at El Cafecito; it’s all open. There is a little roof that shelters the wicker chairs that sit outside. There is an easy chair with cushions. There is a generous fan. All of these elements tell me that I’m going to be... MORE

Fond of La Fonda

Posted: June 30, 2017 - 09:44

Guiones has amazing restaurants but let's agree they come at a price. Yet hope is not lost. There is still a place in Nosara town that gives you the same great food as Guiones proper but a little more affordable: La Fonda. The owner, Alejandro... MORE

Posted: May 12, 2017 - 08:42

At the San Juanillo crossroads, on the left, there is a small house with a little sign that reads “La Sodita.” Upon entering I thought I was going to eat good, but not this good. La Sodita is a bistro disguised as a traditional soda. I sat down... MORE

La Fula in Santa Cruz, The Sweetheart of La Fulana Dynasty

Posted: April 6, 2017 - 19:46

I could tell that this asparagus orzo risotto was made with love. It tasted like something I’d eat after breaking up with a boyfriend: an affectionate blend of barley, squash, asparagus, and Parmesan cheese that reminded me of a mother or... MORE

Sazón Criollo: A Mecca for Budget Tourists in Tamarindo

Posted: March 24, 2017 - 10:00

It’s true that Tamarindo has food options for every taste – especially the organic-artisanal-gourmet-locavore-vegan crowd – but how often have you seen a soda with traditional Guanacastecan food at affordable prices? In the middle of an alley that... MORE

A Sidewalk Cafe Comes to Liberia

Posted: February 3, 2017 - 15:14

A traditional sidewalk café has come to Liberia’s Calle Real with Arte, Café y Studio, a mix of cafeteria, North American confectionery with Guanacastecan crafts, gourmet infusions and local entrepreneurship.   This is one of those places that’s... MORE

There Is No Other Taco in Nicoya Like Lipa’s

Posted: January 20, 2017 - 10:51

From bars to family-run diners, I’ve tried all of the tacos in Nicoya. Each has its own style, but for me, none match Lipa’s quality. I have arguments to defend that statement: These tacos use homemade corn tortillas that as they cool have both a... MORE
