We went to Costa Rica on vacation with my friend Matilda, her sister Margot and her parents. The food was great there, it was kind of Spanish and kind of Mexican. I mostly had two options for drinks - one was a frozen strawberry drink and the other was a pina colada. I like the pina coladas that are more pina than coconut. Here are some of the places we ate. My favorites were La Luna and MarLuna near Quepos.
This was the first restaurant I went to in Costa Rica. It was on the way from San Jose to Quepos - a 3 hour drive! I had lasagna, french fries and plantains. I had Italian food in Costa Rica!!! It was delicious.
This is a nice fancy restaurant that I went to with Mommy and Daddy. It’s in a nice hotel down the road from our hotel. I had tagliatelle with jumbo shrimp and sauce. It was delicious because the fresh tomato pasta sauce was great. Also between our appetizers and dinner they gave us mango sorbet to get the flavor of the appetizer out of our mouths. I liked that a lot. And I got to meet the chef there and see the kitchen…that was fun.
FYI this was our hotel. They had a sign on a board that said “World Famous Restaurant” so we ate breakfast there everyday. What I ate everyday was random until Matilda told me where I could find the pancakes. I said “Una pequena panceke, por favor.” Which means, “One small pancake please.” Everyday I had their great fruit too. And I have a trick for picking fruit. The darkest ones are always the sweetest.
This was a nice in-between fancy and not-fancy restaurant. I went with the Cox family: Will, Lynn, Matilda and Margot. I had pasta with shrimp and tomato sauce. The sauce was different than the sauce at La Luna.
River Rafting on La Sevegre
We went river rafting on a big river. I liked it a lot. Half way down the river we stopped for lunch. We had rice and beans, pineapple (the spanish way to say it is pina) and jelly cookies. I liked having lunch outside in my bathing suit.
The Marlin is sort of outside because on a few sides it has no walls and it’s at the beach so it’s a nice place. We went there twice when we were at the beach. I had rice, beans, plantains and vegetables. They also have frozen blackberry drinks that are great.
I like Cafe Milagro because it is very colorful. We went there after we went to the butterfly sanctuary. I had a kidzadilla for lunch which is a small quesadilla. I also had a fruit plate and mango juice. The mango juice was good. Mommy thought it was just ok. I also had strawberry ice cream that both me and Daddy liked.
