After we'd taken enough photos of the gruesome creatures we headed into Jaco where we knew we could pick up a taco for lunch. Seriously though, Jaco has no shortage of taco joints that opened up apparently just because the two words bring a smile to ones face. Our first stop was Jaco Taco which was closed down perhaps since it's on the far end of town where no one goes? From there we remembered another taco joint from our last trip there. An open air restaurant called, "Tacobar," specializes in fish tacos but also has a variety of other things on the menu. We settled on a two taco dish to share. Clyde's taco was spicy tuna while mine was coconut shrimp. Included along with all meals is the famous salad bar that includes taco toppings, salad fixins, breads and even French fries. The food was really tasty and different but a bit expensive since Jaco is a touristy town.

Clyde's Taco Before Toppings Were Added
If you remember my last blog about the Tico lasagna with ham, chicken, beef and vegetables that was a bit odd? Well last week we stopped in the town of Parrita for a pizza and noticed that the only choice on the menu was "jamon y queso," or ham and cheese pizza. Clyde asked if there were any other options and was given a menu with other varieties. He looked at me and said, "how about a Hawaiian?" "Sure," I said, "but you do realize all they're going to do is top one of those ham and cheese pizzas with pineapples?" The pizza was better than I expected it to be which is always a pleasant surprise.
After we finished with the crocs and the taco's we headed back along the highway to visit a few more beach towns. While all of the beaches here are different in their own ways they all sit along the Pacific ocean. We visited a few others, took some photos and headed back to the casa to tend to the dogs.

Clyde took some amazing photos of the crocodiles as well as beautiful scenery of this lovely country. While similar in some ways to Panama, Costa Rica is cleaner and more geared to tourism. All roads seem to lead to the beaches that are easy to find and clearly marked. So sit a while to enjoy the crocodiles that hang out under the bridge of Rio Tarcoles, Costa Rica.......along the gringo trail.
