The best food I had in Costa Rica with a breathtaking view of the beach and surf. Watched two humpback whales play off shore while sipping one of the best fresh fruit smoothys I have ever had. Must stop if you are within 100+ miles.

We enjoyed our lunch at the restaurant, overlooking the beach, but the best part was our drinks. Ginger & fruits and passion fruit smoothies were our favorite. Tuna poke could have used some help, but pad Thai was better.
