For a small town, there are many good places to eat in Arenal. A new Chinese restaurant, La Muralla, has recently opened near Banco Nacional in the former Arenal Sports Club (Chafi’s bar). Jairo (the local security alarm guy) is the owner, and daily hours are noon-11 p.m. (2694-4071). An eight-page menu in Spanish and English features a wide range of Chinese cuisine at reasonable prices (bocas ₡800-2,000; starters ₡1,600-3,300, and mains ₡2,800-5,500). Seated at round Guanacaste wood slab tables, you can expect to be served generous portions by friendly staff.
