Off the eaten path: Lidia’s Place

Lidia's Place has turned into a must-stop in Puerto Viejo.

Off the eaten path: The best of 2018

We debuted a lot of things in 2018 and one of our favorites was our new dining and nightlife column “Off the Eaten Path.”

Off the eaten path: Tamura

Off the eaten path: Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal is well-known and might not be as “off the eaten path” as some of the other restaurants I review, but it was back when I reviewed it for my high school newspaper back in 2005.
