The owner Stephane Norman is fabulous.
Some places in California like to boost they are in fact the “gourmet ghetto’s”. We have our own gourmet ghetto right in this area. Paquera has Macho’s and Restaurante Liz Seafood next to Macho’s. They are both located side by side at the North end of town heading to Tambor. The food at these cafe’s are fabulous!
Now Restaurante Liz has sushi! Yes, the best sushi. They even have vegetarian sushi. It is super fresh and don’t be fooled–the rolls are huge. Family style would be great for this. The rolls range from tempura, caterpiller, salmon skin, vegi rolls. Amazing. And of course, the presentation is top notch. You can not find a better presentation any place! The prices are so reasonable. This is the best thing that has happened to dining in Paquera.
Don’t forget the seafood soup at Liz–it is out of the world. Also the sea bass, fresh catch and civeche are Amaaaazing!!!
Macho’s of course has the finest burger one can find. Huge, organic grass fed and has bacon, toppings and a real bun that is fresh; Everything about this beats any burger in the country. The casado’s are reasonably priced and fresh. Important note–The place has the best sangria and service!
Moving right along: Isla Chaquita is over the top in every way. Romance, business, visitors, birthdays or just a special dinner–this is the place that people say: Wow!
Isla Chaquita is a boutique glamping resort but they allow guests to visit for dinner reservation only. A private boat picks you up at the ferry landing by the ambulance parking spot on the north side of the dock. The ride is super special because of the bioluminescence. The water throws up amazing tuquoise glowing rainbows at night. This magic boat ride and dinner will amaze you in every way.
Once you are on the small island about 5 minutes from the ferry, you will be greeted by the best in hospitality. The dock is beautiful with fairy lights and romance exudes from the white sand, the patio tables and rustic bar. The bar is stocked with top shelf liquor and the menue is devine. The steak and lobster, chicken cordon bleu was a special favorite. The desserts are awesome. Everything about this place is special and memorable.
So much good food right now. We will feature more in coming blogs. Cheers and enjoy! This place is a gourmet gem.
Yesterday, Carlos Solana and the conservation crew along with families and beach goer’s set out on a mission: The eggs that were laid and harvested, hatched, grew into baby turtles and they were set out on the beach.
Instinctually, they knew where to head…..into the ocean. They know how to swim and survive so they they went! Out to sea……
The turtle eggs are laid in nests which are basically a pit or hole dug by the mother turtle. The eggs in this case were watched over and monitored regularly by a crew of conservationists.
The eggs were hatched and the baby turtles were nurtured by the conservationists. Some times the eggs can be disturbed by vandals, wild dogs or even people that consider them a delicacy. These eggs were all hatched and the results were amazing.
We have so much to enjoy in Playa Organos!
There are several islands in Costa Rica that are worth including in your travel itinerary through the region, one of the most outstanding is Isla Tortuga . It is located off the southeast coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in the north of the country, located 12 nautical miles from Puntarenas.
It is one of those unique destinations that give you a pleasant experience, since it is not only a beautiful island with its beach and a large number of characteristic palm trees, it is also a historical site because it was part of the buccaneer pirate bands that embarked on the island ago. centuries.
From a distance out to sea, its shape resembles chelonians which means turtle in the ancient Huetar language, belonging to the indigenous people who populated part of the Central Pacific, hence its name.
One of my favorite adventures is to go with Bahia Rica to monkey island and then picnic and play in the waters at Isla Tortuga. There is amazing snorkeling and Bahia Rica or a local guide have gear. There is even a banana boat, great bars with coconut cocktails, the gift shop sells food and even wifi time.
You can go to the Playa Organos beach and ask a local boat tour guide to take you out for about 10 mill colones per person.
This is for sure worht the fun!
Some thing I do on a regular basis……
Monkey Island is a delight always a show.…
A big question everyone asks:

Organos Beach, Playa Organos
Organos Beach, Playa Organos, a quiet bay with a gray sandy beach, surrounded by jungle, with a large number of coconut trees and couple of shacks, this is part of the dry forest.
The bay is safe and ideal for swimming, there are fun bodysurfing waves.
Organos Beach has an Ecological Blue Flag Award from the Ministry of Environment, for its cleanliness and eco quality.
Organos Beach is just two miles from Paquera downtown It is almost a mile large, with an estuary or Óganos also has a mangrove on the northern, It is the most popular among locals from the surroundings, it has beautiful scenery and from its shoreline you can watch the Negritos Island and Tortugas Island.
Many people gathered at Playa Organos today to clean up the winter beach.
During the winter/rainy season months, the beach becomes filled with plastics and trash. Of course this goes away with the storms but where does it all go? The ocean becomes polluted and so beach clean up days are vital for the life of a healthy planet.
Bellevue is a key part of CAPATUR which is the Tourism Board and Carlos Solana works tirelessly to help improve life at Bellevue, Playa Organos and Paquera. CAPATUR along with Carlos organized the beach clean up and about 20 people came out along with children.
Trucks and bags were filled and hauled away. It was a beautiful sunny bright Productive day at Playa Organos.
Thank you to Carlos, CAPATUR and everyone that came out to help!
