Apathetic greeting at door by apathetic hippie staff. One price for 'locals' (non Costa Rican locals) and one price for North American tourists. A small mojito with one bar measure shot will set you back $8 in a third world country. The same mojito would be $8 at a high end restaurant with perfect service and copious liquor in NYC. A 'picture' would go for $12 which would be circa two shots. The view is lovely. The climb up for the view is steeped in mud and slop, but well worth it. I kept a watchful eye on the alcohol consumption as I'm a lightweight with an ACL replacement and I can say the drinks were not copiously mixed. Again, can say the profit margin must be very high. I actually asked for mine to be made stronger, however I was told that import duty was an issue. My retort was Costa Rica was a producer of local Rum, why weren't you using that? I wouldn't have minded, just found the staff onerous and relatively patronising. Main courses were okay,not great. Very simple cooking, but there's a distinct lack of availability there, so I won't fault them for that. All and all, if I were staying there, is probably even go back again, but I'd probably be annoyed. Decent cuisine is slim pickings in Santa Teresa, but Santa Teresa isn't really for me. Unfortunately, it's a lovely area of Costa Rica that's been over run buy pseudo North American hippies that are insistent on bleeding every last cent out of tourists trying to enjoy the lovely natural atmosphere.
