Love the pizza here. Super thin crust, great toppings. Staff always nice, house cats so-so. They even had bug spray for me! It's away from the hubbub of downtown. Yummy, a must try!

You cannot call for delivery. However, most restaurants in Tamarindo (including La Baula) are on ticotogo. Just find them on ticotogo, place your order on line, and the pizza will be delivered plus a $5.00 delivery charge.
