RIGHT on the beach and next to the bus stop. So yes, it's a tourist spot. I ate breakfast here several times because of the view and crazy good gallo pinto. Service was fine. It's nice to sit and sip smoothies or coffee while beach gazing or people watching.

Stopped here on 2 occasions purely for a welcome cool smoothie after a walk along the beach. They are huge and so refreshing

The fresh fruit smoothies here are amazing. The decor is well thought out and beautiful. This place opens early and serves pasties and breakfast. The bathrooms were clean and the staff was nice. It was a great early morning breakfast place to start the day.

Even if you're not getting the bus, La Parada is well worth a visit for Breakfast or Lunch. Efficient and friendly service with home made cakes and delicious breakfast & lunch choices coupled with a lovely view over the sea make a great combination.
And if you ARE getting the bus, then you have a comfortable shady place to wait with the option of a snack or two too!
La Parada is a good addition to Puerto Viejo and the added community spirit it shows by offering travellers a comfortable and shady place to sit whilst waiting for the bus, is to be applauded.

This restaurant had a beautiful setting next to the beach.

But, the service was very slow (40 minutes for pancake and omelette is a bit excessive ) and when our breakfast finally arrived the pancakes where all burnt underneath and were not edible. The fruit that accompanied it was nice thou.

I personally wouldn't return there.
