FRESH JUICE, FOOD AND COLD LOCAL BEER BY HERRADURA BAY

Located right across from the beach about 5 steps till you are in the water or close. Lunch served daily at 11:30am. I showed up my first time ever and they weren't serving food yet but they did allow me to order a nice glass of fresh Guayanaba Juice. That allowed me to kill some time until lunch... read more

We walked over from Los Suenos. It was a nice change of scenery, much more local. We got there just as they were opening up for lunch. The Bloody Mary was among the worst I have had. We ordered ceviche and avocado, black bean soup, and a burger for my son. The food was very good. My son and wife... More

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 spot" and... 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

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
