Departure Time

6:30 PM
Head to the hills for an evening of traditional Costa Rican dancing and dining! A driver will pick you up at your hotel and take you to into the hills above San Jose to a restaurant popular for special occasions. An open-air deck and huge windows allow for sweeping panoramic views of the sparkling city lights below. Handmade crafts and historic artifacts decorate the restaurant and picturesque grounds, and you’ll have a chance to purchase a souvenir from local artisan displays on site.

You’ll be treated to an elaborate buffet dinner of Costa Rican specialties with a wide selection of meats, sides, and salads. Prepare your taste buds for authentic eats like chifrijo, a layered dish of rice, red beans, meat, and tomato salsa; olla de carne, a savory meat stew; and chicharones, a deep-fried pork entree. Accompaniments might include empanaditas de queso (cheese turnovers) or the Andean root vegetable salad picadillo de arracache. Be sure to save room for dessert, such as honey plantains, popular rice pudding or bananas with a sweet caramel sauce.

While you dine, watch a traditional Costa Rican dance performance. With live folk music, twirling skirts and dancers decked out in brightly colored costumes, it’s a feast for all the senses! A fireworks show provides a celebratory finish to the evening. A driver will then take you back to the door of your hotel in San Jose.

Is Ram Luna worth a long drive
Mary_F
, Mar 2020
Once we arrived we had a great time at the Mirador Restaurant. The staff was great, buffet had many delicious dishes, the bartender was fun and urged us to try new cocktails (included in the price). The Ram Luna Show was fun , entertaining and got audience involved. The main negative was the 90 minute drive from our hotel due to heavy traffic, and so many winding around various streets.

This was a lovely ride up to the mountains once we got out of the city traffic which is horrendous. We sat at a table for 10 however, they were a four top table put together, so the person sitting in the middle, had double legs, which did not allow you to scoot up to the table and the table next to us was to close. It was very hard getting in and out for a buffet dinner. If we were being served, no problem, but when you have to move almost out the table way, to let someone out or in. The dinner food was okay, nothing to rave about but I was looking to enjoy the entertainment. It was good however, they did a part which was funny to those who spoke Spanish. They did not interpret to English, so most of us did not know what they were talking about. I was disappointed about this because I would have loved to have understood what they were saying. The dancing was very well done and entertaining. They allowed you to take pictures with the group and at the end celebrated birthdays or anniversaries. They almost forgot mine and had to run and get another dancer and cake for me. Unfortunate this night it got a little foggy, so I wasn't able to take a picture of the beautiful view with the cities lights that came out clear. The drive back didn't take very long however, once they get into town, you may wind up getting onto another bus to take you back to your hotel. This also happened on the way up too.

This tour was amazing. It was cold in the hills. It did take some time to get to Mirador Ram Luna - Holiday traffic. We finally arrived an hour after pick-up. Charming host and driver. View was amazing. Lots of different foods to try and drinks. They had a table set-up for us 12 in party. The show was lovely dancers came out twice, then the clowns. They even invited people who had birthdays and anniversaries to come up and Birthday Cake and pictures. Our bus return was at 10:00 p.m. - a Fun evening and great introduction to Costa Rica food and customs.

We enjoyed the dancers and the food was good but not great. Our main issue was with the van driver who was horrible! He drove like a maniac, constantly put us in dangerous situations. We also arrived late so that we were very rushed to eat. Lastly, the host for the evening was condescending....maybe he was just having a bad day but for 140 we expected better.

This was dreadful. THREE hours on a bus to arrive at a 2-hour canned performance, part of which was watching people get pictures taken with the dancers. Then over another hour to get home. Too many companies involved so the bus companies and Viator were out of sync. The worst.

Your vans are terrible. We were picked up at 5:45 pm and it took 2 1/2 hours to meet the other van then another 45 to get to the restaurant . The food was cold and very mediocre. I have had a knee replacement had to climb about 45 slick steps. Was not asked if I had a problem with motion. .

In San Jose traffic it takes about an hour to get there. Our tour guide on the bus was excellent. Show beautifully done. Food was not outstanding, but very good for a buffet. The view was fantastic. Enjoyed every minute of it. At 70.00/person, it was a bargain. Food, drinks, a show,, fantastic view and round trip transportation with a very knowledgeable guide.

The only good thing about this place is the view of the city, other than that it was terrible: bad food both not tasty and not fresh, horrible tiny bathrooms and on top of that when you sit on a toilet your entire head is visible above the tiny stall door. overpriced, takes about an hour to get to this place from San Jose, the dancing show was a joke 20 minutes of amateurs. Stay away from this place.

We really enjoyed the food and the entertainment. Everyone in our group were expecting fireworks to top off the night per the description in Viator. I would recommend that they change the wording to say that the fireworks are an extra that is not guaranteed or not mention them at all then if they do have them its a nice surprise. I'm not sure how they should word it, but the way it states it on the site right now you expect a firework show to top off the evening and they did not have any which was a disappointment to the group I was with.
