Government, storms and earthquakes all Impacted this once very successful restaurant. Rossi of Philly made this a most special eatery and hangout. Bejuco Joe ,Merbeth and others rounded out this friendly place.

Had soggy quesadillas and average pizza. Should've gone with typical Costa Rican food. Cool atmosphere though and right on the beach.

The Flying Scorpion is a restaurant and bar, as well as a hotel. I'm a guest, but helped them out with their Trip Advisor page for the hotel--I guess that I didn't set up the page right...the Scorpion should appear in listings both for hotels and for restaurants. Any questions, please contact me at jeremiah.marble@gmail.com. Thank you very much!
