You'll never go hungry in this region. The north is the country's breadbasket, and the hotels and restaurants out here make use of the bounty to whip up the best in típico Costa Rican cuisine. Don’t be afraid to ask for tap water; it is safe to drink in all but the most rural areas. Service is generally slow but well worth the wait at most restaurants. Your final bill will include a 13% sales tax and a 10%–12% service charge, though we suggest you tip a little extra.
