This is the most lovely place in Tortuguero, don‘t miss it! Everything is frech and homemade including the baguette and the almond croissants. The passion fruit smoothie was the best I had in Costa Rica after having about 25+ already.

Amazing low key place for breakfast and lunch. It’s a small place but the food is prepared in front of your nose.

This is a small cafe owned by a Costa Rican and French couple. It was a bit hard to find--in the corner of a field a short walk from the main road--but it was totally worth it. I had a Croque Monsieur sandwich with a...More

Slightly difficult to find but worth searching out in the grounds of Aracari hostel next to the football pitch. This is a relatively new place in the village which deserves to succeed. We went for a late lunch. Drinks were thirst quenching. I had a...More

A great place, run with love, serving fresh, natural food - and a passion fruit cheesecake that's will make you close your eyes with pleasure. A MUST-SEE when you're in Tortuguero!
