Don't expect anything special. They serve their share of normal staples but nothing you would remember. The air condition does work extremly good though.

Any time I go I have the Dish called Sizzle. You get it with many kinds of Seafood. The first time I go there,(7 years ago) I ask to see the kitchen, because you know Chinese are not the cleanest people. This place is clean and the food is excellent.

we went here to watch the turtles lay eggs but I think we got there late in the season so we didn't see any. The guide was amazing though and very knowledgeable.

A ever changing menu with daily specials, we had ceviche which was good but more fruity as opposed to the lemon/onion/vinegar tang I was used to. Also, we had the sesame tuna (average) and red curry shrimp (average to above average). entrees ran aprox 10-12 and drinks were cheap.

I went to La Fortuna for a sit down dinner and was impressed. Service was great, the food was good. Had the steak kabob, would recommend. It was a successful trip. I returned a few days later to order a few pizzas carry out (about 3:30-4pm), was told they would be ready 30 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later,... More

This town is at the base of the volcano and at night you can take a tour to see sparks of lava glowing in the night sky. There is an awesome hike called Cherro Chato, the locals may warn you against it, but if you are in good shape and looking for a fairly challenging hike, it is worth the... More

Many great restaurants, nice hotels/hostels with reasonable rates. Close to adventure. Close to free fun like the river, free hot springs and a quick jaunt to the national park.

We were a group of two couples and wanted to visit the Volcano, which we did and stayed at a local hostil that was clean, affordable, and the owner was exceptional. The city has a little bit of everything and it was a nice break in traveling from Coast to Coast.
