Foodies drive from all over Guanacaste to sample the fare at this hidden gem. It's worth the search for this otherworldly restaurant, which is the brainchild of chef de cuisine Patrick Jamon. Start off with a fresh-fruit-juice cocktail while you peruse the menu of masterpieces. Look for perfect preparations of seafood, slow roasted meats and one-of-a-kind desserts.

The property also offers simple but sensual luxury at its minimalist bungalows (double US$124). Swish accommodations – decorated with hardwood and soothing tones – surround the glittering saltwater pool.
