Some of our favorite restaurants...

Esterillos Este (East)

Alma del Pacifico- What all North Americans are used to, great service and excellent food!  
Outdoor dining right on the beach.  Entrance on the left about a 10 minute drive north of the
villa, or, for breakfast, take an early morning horseback ride from Del Pacifico for a wonderful
experience! $$$

Hotel Restaurant Playa Bejuco (and bar) - Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. On the
road going down to Bejuco beach from the villa. (About a 10 minute walk)

Esterillos Oeste (West)

Low Tide Lounge - Famous for their full moon parties, Low Tide Lounge is a fun surfers bar
serving great food & drink.  Right on the beach, locals and travelers alike frequent the bar all
day long but especially when the tide is low because when the tide is high everyone is
surfing.  Wireless internet is available.

The Reef - Right next door to the Low Tide Lounge,
this bar also serves great food and drink and is a
hang-out for locals and travelers.  

Azul - 200 meters from the beach, Azul serves great
typical Tico food with plenty of space for your family
and friends.  Adjacent to the restaurant is Azul the
nightclub.  This is a very popular spot for the locals
to let loose on the weekends.  

Los Almendros (The Almond Tree) - The Almond Tree serves the best cuisine in Esterillos
Oeste at a great price.  You will see dishes such as Caribbean Chicken, Seared Tuna and
Lobster.  Don't forget to ask for Karen's special hot sauce.

Playa Hermosa

Backyard - Located next to the hotel on the beach in Playa Hermosa, The Backyard offers
open air dining. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on the oceanfront terrace from 8 a.m.
until 10 p.m. daily.

Villa Caletas -  Just south of Jaco...We highly recommend cocktails at sunset.  Perched on a
cliff 1000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, sunset is an unforgettable experience.  Lunch and
dinner. $$$$


El Pelicano  Gourmet seafood dining on the beach. $$$$

Jaco   Dozens to choose from, but we like:...

The Poseidon  Excellent food at the beach!  Try the seared yellowfin tuna. $$
