Everything is over priced and taste of food is average at best. Go south a little to Sunrise for better food and prices.

Great place to start your day! Amazing café con leche and casados ( Costa Rican breakfast ). If your Spanish isn't so great, or non existent, they speak English as well. Definitely recommend making this one of your meals while in Jaco.

We stopped at Cafe del Mar for a drink. I ordered a pinapple "frias nel latte". It was completely warm and tasted awful! My friend had an Ice Coffee - it was much too sweet and he couldn't drink it. I complained at the waitress, but she didn't care. We both had our worst drinks duiring our 3 weeks stay... More

A most pleasant spot for morning coffee. They open at 0730 punctually, a plus for Type A gringos. The baristas/waitresses are charming and attentive. The coffee con leche is as good as it gets. I admittedly spend an inordinate length of time here.

Excellent food and very friendly staff. Located with great views of the ocean. It located at a boutique hotel right on the beach.
