When we vacation in Guanacaste we stay at a house about 10 minutes away on the beach. But we never miss the opportunity to come and eat / hang out at the Flying Scorpion. This is the place to go whether on your first trip to Costa Rica, or if you want to hang out with the transplanted locals and get the true vibe of the area. The food is very good, I recommend the pizzas and the menu does vary based on availability, you know it's fresh! The drinks are good and it's also a good place to connect to the internet if you're missing that sort of thing, although hopefully you're coming to Costa Rica to get away to begin with.
The gem of this place though are the people, led by the owner Brandon Rossi. He is a fiercely loyal guy and once you've made friends with him he treats you like you're local as well. He will give you all of the inside scoop, set you up on tours, take you on tours himself, all while working hard to keep the place running and get in some surfing.
If you're looking for a sterile 5-star restaurant this is not the place. If you want good times, good friends, and the Costa Rican vibe of Pura Vida, go to The Flying Scorpion!
