After the walk from the southern end of Playa Grande up to Playa Carbon, we stopped at Taco Star for a snack because 1) we like tacos, and 2) how can you pass up tacos on the beach? We were not disappointed.

The tacos were good. Not street cart taco good, but good. And they were bigger than expected (they use flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas). The beef was just ground beef, not carne asada, but it came in big chunks and there was lots of it. And it was tasty. We also got pineapple batidos, and those really hit the spot. The prices were very reasonable and the service was great.

Just sitting there at a funky taco stand by the beach, looking back at the ocean, listening to the waves, with a talkative bird at one end of the bar and an orange cat at the other, eating a taco and sipping a smoothie...ah, I could get used to that. It might be Americanized pura vida, but it's pretty awesome all the same. Taco Star doesn't pretend to be anything but what it is, and that's why it's great.
