No reviews, be the first!

Some say that you don’t come to Costa Rica for the food. And it’s true that the simple, tasty, healthy cuisine of this beautiful country just can’t compare to its glorious beaches, cool mountains, dramatic volcanoes and gorgeous eco-resorts. Regardless, almost everyone enjoys eating in Costa Rica.

The signature dish is the casado, which literally means “married,” as it’s what a married man could expect at lunch (well, before Costa Rican women began running for president and whatnot). Because lunch is traditionally the biggest meal of the day, it has to be hearty and filling.
