Description: Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream

“Tacos That are Better Than Sex....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

These Tacos are unbelievable - if it was socially acceptable I would have sex with these tacos. Chicken is amazing! Christie is really hot too!

“Tasty indeed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Nice Buritos for a very fair price. The place is very laid back, surfer style. Nice location at Playa Cocles, too. The staff was putting a lot of effort in pleasing us, was a cute guy, too. So thumbs up for Tasty Waves! :)

“Great spot by the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

This was near our villas and right next to the beach we visited. Very friendly service, cheap and good food -- fresh ingredients. And the best homemade fries! Enjoyed drinking imperial on a hot day on our way back from the beach.
