We were staying at a vacation rental close to Sancho's and upon the recommendation of the owner of the rental, we decided to order in Mexican. When I called to order, the guy who answered the phone was very helpful with suggestions on what to order. In the end we went with nachos, fish taco platter and two enchiladas. The... More

We passed by this very small taqueria around 230 pm. We parked our shuttle bus/van on the road and walked in as a family of 15. Heidi, the waitress and co-owner, warmly greeted us and quickly put together almost every table in the place right in the front. We had excellent food and service and a lot of laughs. People...

I live in the Manuel Antonio area and this place is a spot I frequent at least once a week. The portions are huge and the prices are great. My girlfriend and I get the nachos every time and every time we are amazed how good they are and how much they give you. Anytime I have family or friends... More

I'm not sure what the previous reviewer is talking about. My family ate there last night and thought it was great! The salsa and guacamole were very good. Definitely recommend if you are looking for inexpensive Mexican food.

I have been visiting Sanchos every year on my vacation since they opened about 5 or 6 years ago. This place has always had great food in a very casual atmosphere. After a day at the beach or checking out the national park the last thing I feel like is going in to shower and get all dressed up to... More
