La Barra

Top choice seafood in Costa de Oro

Wiggle your toes in the sand and dig into fish so fresh it may have just jumped onto your plate from the ocean in front of you. Whether grilled, or cooked al mojo de ajo (with garlic), and served with homemade salsa, fried plantain, rice and an ice-cold beer, it's as close as it gets to perfection.

The fare at the several palapas is comparable in quality, but we particularly like the palapa at the very end of the road because of the estuary views.
