I arrived in Costa Rica with $30,000 in my pocket after a pretty bad time for my family up in the states of course at the time I thought $30,000 was a lot of money, it’s not by the way. Of course  in my Dad’s grand style which I did inherit, I immediately rented an ocean view home in Potrero with a huge yard. Ever the optimist, I knew that I would be able to figure it out.That was  until  a couple of very large goons  came by claiming to be from Immigration  to haul me away. My suspicions were raised immediately when they flubbed a few of their lines and then the kicker was noticing the car they came by in. A $40,000 car from Costa Rica immigration no way boy was I getting in that car. They told me they were going for the police and of course I never saw them again. It turned out the guy that I was renting  from was trying to make a grab for the water rights and needed to break my lease the only water he had for a condominium project he was building up the street our late rogue realtor Larry Albright May he rest in peace. Typical Costa Rican  tactics back when it was really the Wild West but luckily nothing happened other than me having  the you know what scared out of me. Needless to say I split and improved in the 20 years since I’ve been there but the bottom line is when I got there I did not have money to dine out very much and until I started making money I didn’t have much to write about but that changed and which is why I’m going to write the most complete dining guide and hopefully visit each one of these establishments personally. I hope you don’t mind my rambling intro but prepare yourself for the complete dining guide to Tamarindo and Beyond.
