We went here because we met the owner's brother, but we didn't regret it at all. The food is really great and the place itself has the same laidback surfer vibe that makes Puerto Viejo so great. It's also very near a lot of the...More

Stopped in for taco Tuesday and they were pretty tasty. 2 tacos for the price of 1 which is $6 is good value however I wouldn't come on a regular day as 1 taco for that price seems very high for what you get. The...More

This is the place to be on a Tuesday! They have 2x1 tacos and some drink, ladies night for a bit, a bond fire, a band and later a DJ. The tacos looks small but they are filling and very tasty. Highly recommended.

Tasty Waves is more than a humble cantina in beautiful Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, it's a lifestyle. We always strive to become your "home base", giving you local advice on where to go, what sites to see and how to get the most out of your journey or vacation. Our staff is more of a family and we always want you to feel welcome in our home. For the most part it's a relaxed atmosphere but don't get me wrong, we know how to party. Tasty Tuesday has become the biggest and most anticipated party of the week and we always show you a good time, so good that we close on Wednesday to clean up the aftermath. Thursday is Trivia Night, Friday is R.E.H.A.B., Saturday is Karaoke, Sunday Funday and Monday is our Movie Night with new and classics running on our 100" projector screen. Stop in, say hi and have a shot of Guaro with us. Tasty Waves Cantina ~ Livin' the Dream
