Nice place along the main road to take a break from touring. Typical Costa Rican dishes were fresh and tasty and their sweet fruit tea was very refreshing. Another plus was their clean restrooms.

We had a solid "tipico" lunch after a morning mangrove tour, including excellent plantains. The fruit tea was sweet and refreshing. The restaurant is attached to a motel, and is simple, open-air setting.
