Just getting back from 1 week in Playa Grande and had to say that I love this little place. Very sweet people running it, great tacos & banana bread! Great location mid way down the beach so if you are a beach walker like we are then it is the perfect stop for lunch and a cold one. Hammocks and surfing, just cool....very, very laid back fun! Make it one of your stops, you will really enjoy it!

I'm not sure if there was any ONE thing that made us love this place. More like a combo.... Fresh ingredients, cold beer, low prices, great service, and easy going chatter with the owners. We stopped here all 3 days we were in Playa Grande and can't wait to return. It's quite a simple place, but with an authentic, laid back, beach-y vibe that we loved - and with yummy tacos to boot! Pura Vida!

Heard about this place while surfing the internet before our visit to Costa Rica and knew this was a must see on our list of things to do. Well we weren't disappointed. Best little taco stand ever. Cute vibe, great taco, cold beer, and great location right on the beach. Doesn't get much better!

A must do for anyone going to Playa Grande. Cold drinks and tacos right in the beach. Who could ask for anything more.

Okay tacos, good banana bread. Cool experience, but very hot and dirty. Lady making food sweaty and the food prep area didn't look very sanitary.
