We spent 4 nights at Si Como No. We ate breakfast every morning at Rico Tico and made it back for happy hour and snacks. We had nothing but excellent service from Didier, Ronald and Julio. Food was great and the view beautiful and relaxing

My family and I stayed at Si Como No from December 17-23, 2016. On the first day we arrived, we ate at Rico Tico for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

While staying at Si Como No, we enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Rico Tico Jungle Grill.

We are staying at Si Como No and have eaten a few meals here. The food has been great and the staff exceptional! I had the special one night, a tuna steak that was amazing. Best tuna ever and a large portion compared to what I would get in the US.

My wife and daughter and i shared the Christmas special. Red snapper, steak and king prawns. It was with rice and salad and washed down with lovely white wine. We decided it was one of the best meals we had in costa rica during our 13 day holiday and very reasonably priced.
