Puerto Calero: pretty, modern harbour, relatively up-market, sporting several designer clothes shops and lined with bars and restaurants, but still awaiting being fully occupied with shops etc. Very good small café opposite the Tourist Information centre sells excellent value lunches. At the opposite end there is a large white colonial style building which is a hotel and restaurant. There are several Michelin star restaurants in LZ and restaurant ‘Amura’ is excellent, its menu is suitable for a special occasion and the prices reflect this, however, you would still pay at least 50% more for a similar quality meal in the UK. Puerto Calero is home to Catlanza for Catamaran Excursions. Great day out.
There are some lovely beaches at Punta Papagayo. There are no facilities (toilet, snack bar, etc.) and it is a toll road to get there.
