On Escaleras Road
Jolly Roger is a good local bar/restaurant as they’re located right below our front gate. Their troubadour wings are our favorite. They also have pizzas, hamburgers and Caesar salad. The beer is always cold and there’s always a surprising crowd for being in the middle of the rainforest. They are opened everyday at 4pm. Reserve a table of you are a big group.

Dominical (15 minutes north)
Por Que No at the Costa Paraiso Hotel is one of the few restaurants right on the beach. While you wait for food, walk to the edge of a dramatic coast complete with waves crashing and sunsets. To get there drive down the hill from our place to main highway, then turn right, just before Dominical you’ll see their sign somewhat hidden on the left side. Turn left and drive down 10 meters or so.
