Food Scene
The food here is fresh, authentic and absolutely delicious. The falafel is a generous meal, and the lamb in pita is amazing. The also have Turkish coffee! Open 11am-5pm so it's mostly a lunch spot, although we do like it for afternoon coffee or smoothies as well. 5 minutes walk from the house

Las Olas' restaurant is right on the beach, and I always recommend it for breakfast because the daytime chef is a Tica. They make a real Costa Rican breakfast, great empanadas and good coffee. Plus, the prices are more reasonable than at some of the other places along that strip. 10 minutes' walk (or 2 minute drive) from the house.

If you're in a pinch and don't feel like going far, a pizza from Pizza Pata is a decent option. While it's not an AMAZING pizza, it's always hot and fresh, and it's only a 2-minute walk from the house.

Delicious Indonesian and Thai food, in a fabulous setting - the restaurant is on a raised patio in the middle of tall, beautiful trees. Service can be slow during busy times but the food is usually worth the wait. Try going for an early (6pm) or late (9pm) dinner if you prefer a quicker meal. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the surroundings. In Jaco, about 10 mins drive from the house.

Real Italian-style thin crust pizza, better than any other place we have tried in Jaco so far. You can choose your toppings or get one of their 6 classics. There is plenty of seating, but no table service - order at the pizza prep counter at the back, drinks/payment is at the cashier.

The freshness of the fish and quality of the food is great here, even if it's not really authentic Japanese sushi... more of a fusion deal. But the place itself is beautiful - small but open, just up the street from the beach, a nice outdoor seating arrangement. Drinks are yummy too. A good spot for a first stop of drinks/tapas around Jaco. We've gone early with the kids and they were very accommodating.

Although it's pricey (like, North American prices) the food is really good and the drinks as well. Great ambience, good music and they have an indoor area if you prefer the AC. It's usually busy so for Friday and Saturday nights I would recommend making a reservation. The great thing is that if it's busy or you have to wait too long for a table there are 2 other good options right there: PuddleFish Brewery and Juanita's.

If you're looking for a cheap and filling meal, this is a great option. They serve real Tico dishes in cold and hot buffets - the place is so popular that everything is always freshly made. It's a great lunch spot if you spend the day in Jaco, it's only a few steps from the beach. Nothing fancy but definitely authentic.

Much more than just a bakery - they make yummy breakfasts and lunches as well. Their bread and baked goods are delicious - they have Argentinian empanadas that are quite tasty and good coffee too. It's a good spot for a quick bite or to pick something up on the way home.

Drinks & Nightlife
This is the main hangout in Playa Hermosa. It's a big bar with a portion that is beachfront. Can be pricey and the food is not that great but the ambience is fantastic. They host a surf contest ever Friday and Saturday around 4pm, it is a de facto happy hour for locals and tourists in the area.

Surfer bar in Jaco. Good music, inexpensive drinks and plenty of young, fun people to hang out with. Laid back place that is popular on the weekends.

Green Room is a delicious restaurant, but it's also a good option for going out because they have live music every night. Great local and touring acts, comedy nights, open mic nights and more. Good drink specials too.
