I'm returning to MA (Tulemar) next Feb. One thing I missed last trip was some sweet goodies. Where is there a good bakery selling pastries, croissants, nice breads etc? I don't mind venturing to Quepos if needed.

MUSMANNI in Manuel Antonio. They're all over Costa Rica and have a large selection at very low prices! You'll see their white and orange sign...can't miss it. :-)

Yes I know that name from when I lived in Palmares. Exactly what I'm looking for. Where are they located in MA? Could you please give directions from Tulemar?

Emilio's in Manuel Antonio has a great selection and it's close to Tulemar. If you're familiar with the area, then it's right across from the soccer field above the Backpacker's hostel. In Quepos La Panera is also delicious!

Musmanni is located in Quepos - on the same street as the the bus station, across the street from the Banco de Costa Rica. There used to be a small branch across from the beach in MA near Marlin's - but I don't think it is there anymore.

Supermas in Quepos has a good selection of breads and pastries in their cafe/bakery section.

As Mila mentioned, La Panera is good. It is located on the same street as Pali - but more into town.

There is also a bakery called panaderia Las Americas in Quepos.

At the weekly feria - on Friday nights and Saturday there are some Mennonites that sell home made baked goods. People say their pies and other stuff are delicious. There is also Quincy who sells quiches and other things there.

If you just want a nice piece of carrot cake or German Chocolate cake or other desserts - Cafe Milagro.

I just read that there is a guy named Ignacio making and selling Argentinian breads. He is at Hotel Plinio.

The Musmanni I frequented in Palmares had a great selection of yum yums and prices were excellent. Never made a trip into town without a stop there. lol
