Ceviche del Rey information
It’s worth the trek to the outskirts of town, north of Río Alajuela, for Peruvian food at this favorite family outpost. Expect Andean classics, such as fresh ceviche (seafood marinated in lime juice), the tender stir-fries known as saltados and even harder-to-find regional specialties such as cabrito a la norteña (stewed goat in cilantro) – but don't expect to find cuy (guinea pig).
