We stayed in the cabinas of sol y mar. The food was so good, we didn't even feel the need to look for anything else. They have a menu with a lot of different choices. The breakfasts are really nice and healthy. They have excellent,...More

We've eaten here on 3 different trips to Zancudo. The food has always been good, especially the fresh tuna. However, the service has been very poor every time. Often you need to sit at a table with others so it's not a very romantic experience....More

This is a great place to hang, Rick and Lori make you feel like family right off the bat. The local ticos and tourists mingle well, a very friendly place with great food and good vibes, great cocktails and cold beer also.

Great food, setting, specialty drinks, clothing, jewelry, and always interesting conversations to be had at the bar. We never miss a stop at Sol y Mar on our trips to CR.

We were staying at the cabinas, so we went charging all to the room, we tried dinner the first night there and immediately realized we weren't likely to go anywhere else in Zancudo for food. I simply couldn't put down the Bangkok Thai Tacos (minty...More

I'm not sure it's the beach being so close you can hear it or the weather or the folks that find themselves in Zancudo, but it is likely a combination of all three that keeps us coming back to the Sol Y Mar. No, it's...More
