I was in

Fortuna last week and eat at a huge soda across the street from the park .it had giant burgers

(kinda a trademark I think) .(we got the Costa Rican meals,,I got tongue)can someone give me the name so I can write a review.It was very busy, a small soccer team was there,and a thunder storm was going on.so it was very loud and hectic(fantastic atmosphere) and the service was exceptional,the food was the best of the sodas we went to, Certainly worth mention.

1. Re: soda?

Dear sam...

I think you are talking about SODA LA PARADA...they are the best...a local family runs and own the place...very humble hard working costaricans...they switch the hard farm work and dairy cows to run a SODA and they are doing just great!

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review...they will love that!

4. Re: soda?

It is Soda la Parada, so named because the bus stop (la parada) used to be right in front. A few years ago the bus stop moved a few blocks west and south to the corner of the big new supermarket centro commercial but Soda la Parada kept the name.

We got a pizza there and took it back to our hotel to enjoy the view of the volcano. Nice to have such an affordable spot.
