For a taste of the Caribbean without leaving San José, try this corner spot in Barrio Escalante painted Rasta red, yellow and green. Steamy bowls of rondón (seafood gumbo), rice and red beans, and fish simmered in spicy coconut sauce go well with agua de sapo, a zesty sweet ginger drink. Don’t forget the fried plantains and, in season, the crisp breadfruit.
