Great food, wonderful staff. Movies on Monday nights projected on a big screen. Tables outdoors or in, take your pick. A friend had the chicken taco, I had the chicken tenders, with a couple of Imperials - how can you beat it?

We went to Tasty Waves on Taco Tuesday, and the tacos were great and cheap! The burritos were also delicious. I liked Tasty Waves because they put their own spin on regular dishes and the result is quite delicious.

Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream
