Great atmosphere at La Baula. Great service and menu choices. Definitely the best pizza in town. Go for a fun and relaxing evening and enjoy the pizza.

Seems crazy that you have to go to Costa Rica to find some of the best pizza ever. Wood fired, crispy thin crust...just the way I like it.

The thin crust pizza was excellent. One pizza easily feeds two maybe 3 if you aren't super hungry. We had the prosciutto arugula pizza. So fresh and delicious. The outdoor covered dinning area gave a great atmosphere. Their cocktails are strong. Highly recommend this off the beaten path restaurant.

Great pizza at fair price. Nice and friendly service. Lots of options in menu. Prosciutto, arugula and Parmesan pizza is a great choice.

Las Baulas has, without a doubt, the best pizza in the whole of Guanacaste. The fact that is usually packed any day of the week attest to this fact. The place is very nice as well, and the service cordial, fast and professional.

Very cute place. Service was good. Pizza was great...thin crust, not too much sauce! Definitely worth a try.

After traveling through Costa Rica with a tour group, and eating many meals, we were so ready to have some good pizza. We read about this place, and then our bus driver also recommended it. What a find! It is an open air restaurant with lots of locals eating there. The server was just a delight - she was so... More

Went to this restaurant with locals. The atmosphere is amazing and the food equally great. But the mojitos were to die for. Had a pizza each and all were terrific. Loved it and will be back when in CR again.
