“Great Mexican food in Playa del Coco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Absolutely great food! Tried several things in the menu over the course of our vacation, and it was fresh and delicious. Loved the chicken enchiladas and tacos, and our two-year old loved the chips! Of course one of the highlights was the guacamole. The location was great, right in the middle of town and easy to get to. Will definitely revisit- already dreaming of a second trip!

“Great Mexican food in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Costa Rican and Mexican food is very different. If you are visiting Playas del Coco from the States and crave good Mexican food, Holy Guacamole is the place to visit for the basics that are very good. The owner, formerly from So. California, is a great cook, and makes healthly and delicious plates at a reasonable price. It is located in a small food mall in the middle of town which makes it a great stop after a trip to the beach or after shopping.

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

Holy Guacamole is a new restaurant in Coco, and as a long time resident its nice to have a new option. I tried the Beef tacos and my girlfriend had the quesadillas and both were fresh and tasty. Usually mexican food in Costa Rica is heavily fried and loaded in poor quality cheese, sour cream and oil to make it tasty but leaves you feeling gross and stuffed after. Thankfully this is not the case at Holy Guacamole, the food still tasted great, but was made with lighter ingredients: fresh vegetables and an awesome salsa bar.
