Lucky find along the way to Arenal national park. Great food that everyone in our party enjoyed. No one left hungry- best arroz con pollo yet! A visit by a Tucan and wild turkey were a plus.

We stopped by for some ceviche and guacamole. Delicious, fresh and not expensive. Nice outdoor, covered seating area. It's a bit out of town so not easy to find, but a lovely little spot.
