If you are on your way to one of the beaches in Guanacaste I can recommend this clean and good highway restaurant. They serve an excellent typical breakfast with fresh fruit, gallo pinto and a good expresso. High speed internet also available.

If hungry while driving, this is a good place to stop. Specially if you are not on a diet! Camarones con arroz, patacones, fried fish are delicious. It is a simple restaurant. Do not expect sophisticated cousine. Just enjoy.
