We stayed in play cocles for 5 days. We used to have our coffee every morning at botanica organica. Nathan was really nice. I usually dont like vegan food but the plates we used to order were really good. Try the avocado sandwish and the guanabana ice cream.

Loved coming here in the mornings and enjoying a coffee/breakfast. The staff was awesome! So friendly and welcoming and it was sad to say goodbye. The dogs were also the cutest, just hanging out. I can't wait to go back next time. XO

I don't know, maybe it is all the pure organic potions, lotions, soaps, oils and other goodies in the retail portion of the shop, maybe it is the combined gentle personalities of the cooks and host Alfredo, but taking a seat in this indoor/outdoor restaurant puts you in the mind of being back at grandmas home on the farm.

Great food! The veggie burritos were big and PACKED with veggies and avocado. The lentil burgers are in a pita and again, JAMMED full of veggies and a great yogurt sauce on top. Great stop as we biked back to Puerto Viejo de Limon from Playa Chiquita.

We loved the breakfast and lunch options at this place. Also had some delicious fruit juice- it really hit the spot on a day in the mid-80s. For the Puerto Viejo area, we thought this was relatively inexpensive.

Came here twice. Had the caribbean plate twice and it was a blast. Especially I liked the sauce and the lentil burger. The owner is very friendly and welcoming.
