Rainforest Café

Cafe in La Fortuna

We know it’s bad form to start with dessert, but the irresistible sweets at this popular spot are beautiful to behold and delicious to devour. The savory menu features tasty burritos, casados, sandwiches etc. There’s also a full menu of coffees, including some tempting specialty drinks (such as Mono Loco: coffee, banana, milk, chocolate and cinnamon).

There’s a dash of urban-coffeehouse atmosphere here, and it's popular with cool Costa Rican kids with plastic to-go cups.
