Our opinion

Banana Azul in Playa Negra is a fabulous spot to spend some time if you are traveling to the Puerto Viejo area. The landscaping, location on the beach, pool and restaurant/bar area are convenient and beautiful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and breakfast is included.
