We love La Puesta Del Sol!! We go back for more every year and you can't beat the vibe, the folks, the food and the beautiful views. It's a family run corner bar and restaurant and has friendly people, locals that work at Los Suenos to local fisherman that take out charters to peeps like us; folks that want the... More

We may have saved the best for last. We saw this restaurant recommended on Trip Advisor. I had actually had a drink here one night, not realizing it was also a great restaurant. Even then the service was great, the bartender (Dennis, the owner) was gracious and helpful. Introduced me to a Nicaraguan Rum I'd never had... Flora de Cana... More

The perfect place to enjoy a cold beer, really fresh Ceviche and amazing view. Eclectic mix of locals and tourists and a great vibe overall. All feel welcome and everyone is always having a good time. This is a great beach bar/restaurant in paradise!

We wanted a local, low key vibe and happened upon La Puesta del sol as we drove down the beach. It is open air facing the beach with simple fresh food, good beers and a good jukebox. This is not the place for fancy cocktails. The crowd was mostly local the night we were there and very friendly.

Loved the Marriott but wanted a little change so took a walk to La Puesta Del Sol and found this awesome spot. Dennis the owner is great. He is from the states and was more than helpful. Wish we would have walked over from day one and not the last day of our trip. Food was great and he will... More

Herradura was not even going to be a stop on our tour until a retail car employee recommended that we make a stop there and we are all glad we did. Once there we found this place almost by default in the fact that the other restaurants on the beach were overpriced and looked out of place. First off the... More

The fish was fresh and delicious, refreshing cold drinks and fruit smoothies, friendly staff...I ate here several times during my stay in Herradura and was very happy each time. Karaoke on Saturday night was a blast and the crowd was a friendly mix of locals and tourists.

On the beach at Playa Herradura, La Puesta del Sol offers good food at reasonable prices. A funky little place that caters to locals and beach goers, the restaurant offers a variety of food, from burgers to local fare to seafood and pastas. Prices are very reasonable, while the food is good with plentiful portions. It is a short beach... More

If you are looking for high end and uniformed wait staff, stay at Los Suenos just a short walk down the beach. On the other hand, if you are already a guest at Los Suenos, as I have been, La Puesta Del Sol (sunset) is a nice way to mix it up, hang with the locals and enjoy reasonably priced... More

The bar at the Mariott disappointed us on the first day with horrible margaritas. 10% tip is already included in the bill, so think carefully about how much you add. The view of the bay at Herradura beach is good from the balcony.
