Really enjoyed walking up on the rock formation across the road on the ocean. The bruschetta was excellent and the pizza was good. Medium pizza was 8500 colones & was just right for two of us.

Pavones lies around 15 km south of Playa Zancudo and on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Around 400 km south of the capital city San Jose, the best way to get to Pavones is via Golfito, from where you can catch a cab to here. The restaurant is just south of Rio Clara along the coastline.
