We absolutely love our first meal in Jaco at the Tacobar. Everything is tasty. This is a popular place so expect a bit slower service. Recommend!

I had a tuna steak and salad bar (7100 colones) and it was so right on time. After a week of beans and rice the green things were so welcome. It's not extensive but very functional. Beets, lettuce and cold cooked veggies were there when I went through.

It took us a few minutes to decide, shrimp ceviche (& mixed) was ABSOLUTELY deliciouso! I had the chicken sandwich, my boyfriend had red snapper fish taco. The toppings you could add made the dinner over the top.

Before it closed down, Bohios on the beach was my favorite place to go in Jaco. But since going to Taco Bar I... More

These were amazing! Such big portion sizes and so delicious! You can order your taco meat and then put your own toppings from the bar. Also the mango smoothie was on point!
