Everything is over priced and taste of food is average at best. Go south a little to Sunrise for better food and prices.

Great place to start your day! Amazing café con leche and casados ( Costa Rican breakfast ). If your Spanish isn't so great, or non existent, they speak English as well. Definitely recommend making this one of your meals while in Jaco.
