El Pilón

El Pilón is a great find for seafood lovers, as their menu always features fresh catch and great drinks to enjoy them with. Take a seat at their wooden tables within the dark-tiled dining room, and soak in a laid-back yet classy atmosphere, preceding it with, perhaps, an aperitif at the bar.


The Guanacaste region has excellent coffee. The dramatic mountainous geography gives local coffee beans a smooth body with light acidity and defined bitter and salty notes. Third wave coffee shops have only now started popping up in Liberia, but that doesn't mean that coffee connoisseurs will be left wanting. Plenty of cafes serve cups of delicious liquid gold prepared the traditional way. Many cafes also serve light meals.
