Fodor's Review

This “Costa Rican cowboy saloon with a surfer twist” is a full-day experience that starts with zip lining, horseback riding, and ATV tours, and ends with a BBQ feast of smoked meats like ribs, pork, chorizo, ranch chicken, and grilled vegetables. You can mix and match activities or skip right to the fiesta at 7 pm, featuring a Guanacaste-inspired menu made with ingredients from their working ranch. Homegrown bananas, mangoes, and citrus are used to infuse cocktails and make dressings and sauces for the farm-to-table dishes. Every Friday, the menu switches from meats to seafood with barbecued shrimp, corvina, mahimahi, and lobster delivered fresh from local fishermen. Even vegetarians rave about the endless options of all-you-can-eat grilled fruits, vegetables, and salads. The rustic ranch dining room is intimate and memorable, and the remote location just outside of Tamarindo means you’re likely to get a spectacular star show.
