No better place to wander in off the beach, relax with some Caribbean chicken and a cold drink. The smoothies are easily the best around. The vibe is so friendly, and the food so good!

Puerto Viejo has some incredible food, but, Sol del Caribe won our vote for the best food. The Ron Don with langostino was incredible. Put this place on your list...maybe twice.
