Another can-only-get-there-by-boat eatery in Tierra Oscura (not too far from Rana Azul) is Los Amigos. Ernie is a sweetheart who serves terrific food. We’ve had the fried chicken (great), baked chicken (even better), and eggs Benedict (to die for). The burgers and pancakes also look totally delicious. The restaurant perches above the water amidst the mangroves, as does the little village around it. The buildings are connected by narrow planks that the kids obviously learn to negotiate at an early age, given the successful crossing by a toddler we saw wobbling along her way.
