Another Trip To Costa Rica Means a Few Trips To La Puesta Del Sol

We've been coming to this great local spot since our first visit to Costa Rica and each trip brings us back at least 2 to 3 times. It's a spot where the locals go, the tourists meander here from Los Suenos property and the staff seems to remember everyone!! We love it here. To us, this is "our... read more

I walked to this restaurant with my family from Los Suenos. The walk took about 5 minutes, but we had to be careful of the tide coming in, as there are times when it would be difficult to cross. The staff was very friendly, and the food was good! The atmosphere was different from many of the restaurants around the... More

So, the absolute best atmosphere to relax and enjoy the true Pura Vida, the essence of Costa Rica.... Local food and CHEAP, COLDEST BEER of any on the beach bar, and there isn't too many.....A quick trip from Jaco(10 min north) to enjoy one of the best views the area has to offer! The food and the staff are absolutely... More

Went to this restaurant twice for dinner and once for lunch while staying in the Los Suenos area. The food was great and the restaurant staff was very friendly. They even offered an insanely cheap jukebox offering authentic Spanish music as well as a diverse variety of music from the United States. If you like fairly priced food and drinks... More

very cool spot to come hang during the day, or even to come for dinner. Food is fresh and inexpensive. Try the whole red snapper! Local bottled beers are only $2. Feels like a locals hang out, but friendly to tourists. Can't go wrong with this place on your visit!

My friends went to Costa Rica for Memorial Day weekend, and had an amazing time. Puesta Del Sol was a short golf kart ride away from where we were staying in Los Suenos, and we ate their twice. Both meals were delicious. I had the red snapper, and shrimp with rice. Both great meals. It was also very reasonably priced,... More

Right on the beach. Awesome staff, and local beer for 1000 colones. I live in Herradura and this is my favorite spot for a casual drink and snack, including Jaco.

Nora makes all feel welcome. A place for every age group. Lots of fun on the beach. Watch the boats leave for montezuma..... Like going back to the sixties watching young people in bandanas and backpacks going off on another adventure. Saturday night is karaoke..... If that sounds naff you should still go...... Such a laugh.
