    La Luna

    9 reviews

    Simply walk south down the beach about 150 yards and you are at laLuna. One of the best place to watch the sun set over the Pacific and have dinner in the state of Guanacaste. This restaurant went through a rough spell when the owner had a baby but it is back to hitting on all eight cylinders now.

    A fun place too spend a day in the surf while eating a delicious lunch at Lola's. Playa Avellanas, where Lola's is located, is a great beach for surfers, boogies boarders and those who like to bounce in the waves. And of course, there's Lolita, the >300 lb pig.........

    San Clemente Bar and Grill

    2 reviews

    The original Dominical surf bar and a great spot for Cal-Mex cuisine of all varieties, leaning towards the seafood. Excellent breakfast, burritos and nachos, and their Imperials are always cold. Get a free taco and beer if you give them your broken surfboard to hang on the wall.

    Excellent Mexican food in downtown Jaco. My friends and I usually stay in nearby Playa Hermosa, but come into Jaco to eat as the food is generally much better. This is a local favorite.
