Coconut figures into a lot of the regional cuisine here. Most nights, local women cook up pots of various local specialties and sell them from the front porches of the two discos or from streetside stands around town; a full meal will cost you around $5.

In addition to the places listed below, for good, fresh Italian fare, try El Girasol (tel. 2755-1164), a small, elegant family-run joint on the main road into town. Another popular Italian option is Pizzeria Cahuita (tel. 2755-0179), located between the police station and Restaurant Edith.
