A unique culinary treat on the golf course
Inspired Baja whimsy meets authentic Mexican eats at Lucha Libre in Costa Palmas. Surrounded by the emerald fairways of the Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf club, this vibrant, open-air eatery serves up everything from Mexican street tacos and wood-fired pizzas to their specialty: the Argentinian “Choripan”, which melds the flavors of homemade chorizo, a “bolilo” bread roll and chimichurri.
Described by Golf.com as “a culinary experience like no other,” this golf-course-based “comfort station” is anything but traditional. Here, experience a picture-perfect moment at the lapis-tiled bar, the heartbeat of Lucha Libre. Grab a stool and an ice-cold beer and gather round to replay the day, refuel and go or to take in the coral-colored sunset overlooking the 13th hole.
Lucha Libre is a favorite among Costa Palmas homeowners and Four Seasons guests – it’s the menu that keeps calling them back. “The most fun we had at a meal was at Lucha Libre”, wrote Patricia Doherty on her Travel+Leisure article on Costa Palmas. And continued, “The chefs encouraged us to relax there before we went back to golf, and we laughed as one donned a lucha libre wrestling mask for our photos”. Chef Gonzalo Cerda’s authentic Mexican fare creatively combines lively flavors that deliver with every bite. So, sit back and relax. And as golf.com says, “As [far] as halfway house experiences go, you might never have another that’s even half as good.”
