I’m dining in a thatched roof restaurant right on the beach. I can hear the rhythmic rush of waves on sand. In front of me is a lobster dinner, fresh from the fishing boats anchored a few meters away. The cost: 230 córdobas (about $10.00). I order a cold beer – Toña is the local favorite – which adds just 30 córdobas (about $1.25) to my bill.
OK, this isn’t a Michellen star restaurant and a world famous chef has not cooked the food. But my goodness it tastes great. Some might even argue that the scenery alone is worth the price tag.
