We were on our way to Rincon Beach coming from Sandy Beach and found this small place! I am glad that we stop because it was good. We ordered a papaya smoothie and Alabama smoothie.

Im 100% plant based vegan and Carta Buena saved me. I can't get anything vegan here in Rincon. The food was awesome and the two girls working were the best. I'll be back for sure. My friends who laugh at me for being vegan also...More

We serve delicious Food, Juices, Smoothies, & Coffee in our own organic gardens. We are not nutritionists, fitness gurus or a lifestyle brand. We don't sell cleanses or medicine. We just make delicious things that are also good for you. Our menu is designed around the Puerto Rican Harvest Calendar and we use what we grow in our gardens. We source our other fresh ingredients locally and organically. Our juices are made with a hydraulic cold press to maximize the benefits. This pressing action doesn't heat or oxidize the produce. The result is a nutritionally packed, live juice that is loaded with enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals & other vital elements that tastes fresh and delicious. Thanks for trying us out.
