Go to Costa Rica, Speak French And Enjoy Life


No surprise, but we arrived back in Costa Rica yesterday afternoon. Since the  condo in Tamarindo isn't available until later today, we spent the night in Liberia, where there is an international airport serving the many tourist areas in the northwest. 

We had dinner at Cafe Liberia, the number one rated restaurant on Trip Advisor. Chef-owner Sebastien Devenelle presides. He is from Reims, France. It was too difficult to start a business in France so he came to Costa Rica and fell in love (as all visitors do). Devenelle opened a restaurant in the oldest building in town, where he serves simple and simply perfect food. My review on Trip Advisor has a description of our meal.

Highly recommended if you find yourself in this part of the world.

I should have known that this was where you were off too! That restaurant sound great. I only spent long enough in Liberia to pick up the rental car. Sounds like I a missed out on a real treat.

There is a trend for international restauranteurs in Costa Rica. In Tamarindo, there is Seasons Restaurant, whose chef, Shlomy, is Israeli, and Coconut Restaurant, owned by a Norwegian. Have a great trip and enjoy your stay in our condo.

Hello Robert,

We hope to see you soon, and if you sent me an e-mail or if you call me one day before, I will prepare something special for you.
