Seems crazy that you have to go to Costa Rica to find some of the best pizza ever. Wood fired, crispy thin crust...just the way I like it.

The thin crust pizza was excellent. One pizza easily feeds two maybe 3 if you aren't super hungry. We had the prosciutto arugula pizza. So fresh and delicious. The outdoor covered dinning area gave a great atmosphere. Their cocktails are strong. Highly recommend this off...More

Las Baulas has, without a doubt, the best pizza in the whole of Guanacaste. The fact that is usually packed any day of the week attest to this fact. The place is very nice as well, and the service cordial, fast and professional.

Very cute place. Service was good. Pizza was great...thin crust, not too much sauce! Definitely worth a try.

Went to this restaurant with locals. The atmosphere is amazing and the food equally great. But the mojitos were to die for. Had a pizza each and all were terrific. Loved it and will be back when in CR again.

How much is a pepperoni and cheese pizza? And do they deliver?

Response from CaroleeCDavis |
You cannot call for delivery. However, most restaurants in Tamarindo (including La Baula) are on ticotogo. Just find them on ticotogo, place your order on line, and the pizza will be delivered plus a $5.00 delivery charge.
Can't figure out where you are in Tamarindo. Tripadvisor references Pasatiempo hotel but I don't know where that is either. We are at La Perla in the Norht end of the city
