Dining options are pretty limited in Playa Grande, but it’s worth trying Upstairs ★, the restaurant at the Rip Jack Inn, or the Great Waltini’s ★, at the Hotel Bula Bula. Both serve fresh seafood and prime meats, cooked with care. You might also try the Taco Star (no phone) a simple open-air beachfront joint serving up fresh fish tacos and other Mexican favorites. For breakfast, head to Mamasa (www.mamasarestaurant.com; tel. 8445-1797) for its eggs Benedict with a jalapeño hollandaise, filling breakfast burritos, and homemade bagels.
