Our favorite seafood restaurant close by. Bob loves the arroz con camarones (rice with shrimp) and Monika loves the sopa de mariscos caribena with a side order of rice (coconut milk seafood soup with a hint of spicy). We both love the ceviche mixto and often make it a take out. They also deliver!

Arts & Culture

Barva is one of the last traditional towns in Costa Rica. Around the towns square all the buildings are still build with the authentic adobe. Home of the BIG HEAD traditional masks makers, one can see these at street corners. The central park hosts many local artists sculptures. An interesting place to hang out and people watch, or maybe shake your booty on Sundays when local bands play at the kiosk.
