i have spent many days eating outside staring at the ocean and the street traffic. The food is authentic and simply awesome. You might extend your stay just so you can sample everything on the menu!

Thank you for this review of Carboncitos. We are so glad you enjoyed both the hotel and the restaurant. The Pumpkin Salsa should have its own page for its famous status! Thank you for helping us spread the word!
