A Cosmopolitan Gem
In The Middle Of A Tropical Jungle

Papaya Restaurant, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

Papaya pinks. Terrazzo tiles. A drifting soundtrack of cool beats alongside cackling tropical birds. When you stroll our jungle path and find yourself at Papaya Restaurant, you’ll feel as if you’ve come upon a cosmopolitan gem in the middle of a tropical jungle.

We’re calling it. Papaya Restaurant will become your favorite boho hideaway for poolside lounging and leisure. The colors, textures and aesthetic details is what makes this space effortlessly cool —and unlike any other spot in Puerto Viejo.

Our culinary experience is influenced by our tropical surroundings. International tastes. The AfroCaribbean culture of Puerto Viejo. That’s why you’ll find colorful smoothie bowls. Familiar flavors of the world. And modern takes on AfroCaribbean comfort food.

And that soundtrack? Papaya Restaurant is our secret hotbed for music lovers. We host intimate DJ sets, theme nights, and impromptu acoustic gatherings. You can also take the tropical vibes with you. Visit our Spotify Playlists often for curated playlists of our favorite artists.
