Mal Pais offers a world class beach destination tucked away at the tip of Peninsula de Nicoya attracting visitors from all over the world. Located a full day drive away from San Jose airport we recommend taking a commuter flight to Tambor Airport. If you're looking for great surfing options with an array of beaches, fishing, and snorkeling then Mal Pais is the place for you. 

Eating out in Mal Pais offers a wide range of fine dining and local casual restaurants. Local seafood is a speciality and yet there is one place that you must visit during your stay. Mary's Farm offers exceptional floor to table cuisine and even has a hydroponic greenhouse that produces all their vegetables and herbs. Raising their own hens, chickens and pigs you will be assured of the ultimate quality regardless as to what you order.  If you are seeking a true farm to table dining experience we highly recommend Marys Farm.  

Mary’s Farm started more than 80 years ago. You see Mary’s grandfather was one of the first to venture to this end-of-the-road jungle on the beach. These first settlers came with only what could be packed in on horseback. They made a clearing and started with shelter. Over the years these pioneers came to build a village. No roads and certainly no vehicles, horse trails and footpaths were the only transportation routes. People made their own clothing, the rancho houses they lived in, cooked over open fires the food they had grown, gathered, or hunted; totally self sufficient and isolated.

So, feeling a need to make a connection to this rich past and to take our fresh and local attitude to the next level, several years ago we started Mary’s Farm. Located across the stream directly in back of the restaurant, on the same fields that Mary’s father used to farm rice, beans, and corn is what has become a whole new culinary adventure.

We currently have a hydroponic greenhouse producing all our salad greens and fresh herbs, three separate fields of rotating crops of peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, squash, cucumber, spinach, and zucchini. Also we have a rotating flock of 250 chickens, 35 laying hens and 6 pigs. All of this grows from and feeds too the restaurant in a beautiful symbiotic loop of plant, feed, and harvest. Or as they as say “Farm to Table”…
