This is the first place we hit on our first morning in town and we're going back again and again. Coffee was great, food was delicious and the service was top-notch. Wonderful atmosphere and a great place to pick up a book (or leave one).

I liked everything about this place! Good food, walls lined with books, and great coffee. The proprietor was super nice. I highly recommend it.

Enchanting place, like a pura vida bookstore where books and the best coffee and tea and breakfasts are served by kindness and professionalism, whilest listening to exquisite relaxing music and

being cared by all of these:

the literature you may need:
one of the many many second hand books available at very affordable prices,
and all kinds of guides to be read at thsi nice cafe,
the food you may need, from exquisite juices to beautifully presented ANA ROSA SPECIAL
the laundry you may need to travel clean and dry (what a pleasure in this dearest Costa Rica)
the many things a traveller wants to know abut this area (best beaches, restaurants,...)
the bike or snorkling equipment!!

a delightfull place with enchanting people

Pura Vida!!

Muchas gracias!!

We spent a month in Puerto Viejo and visited Cafe Rico almost daily. This place has a very peaceful atmosphere, the food is fresh and DELICIOUS, and serves up the best coffee around. There is a great collection of books available as well in the cafe. The owner, Roger, is a delight and he provides excellent service!

Roger is the nicest cafe owner I have ever come in contact with. He is always in a good mood. The coffee and food is fantastic and the wifi connection is extremely great as well. I could spend all afternoon in the cozy atmosphere of this cafe.
