food shopping and Christmas reservations

We are arriving in Donimical on Christmas afternoon and have booked a villa for the week. I am concerned about getting food on Christmas day - are the shops even open? and if not.......where to eat after a long travel day and more importantly do we need reservations and how to make them from Chicago. Thanks, Mo

Dear mo59...

Are you driving to Dominical from SJO??

Good to know if you are driving ...some places along the way you can maybe stop...also depends of the time of arrival in our country?

Many restaurants are open for Christmas in Dominical, if you are driving from SJO might be a good idea to stop at Automercado in Heradura near Jaco to get some basics. You will find a suppermarket open in Uvita 15km South of Dominical. Go Market is open until 11pm

Enjoy your stay
