Beach carts are a tradition in Costa Rica and high season is cart season.
They sell cold drinks and snacks.
My favorite are the freshly roasted marañon (cashew nuts) that come in a cellophane tube.
But the most popular carts sell Copos – hand shaved ice, topped generously with colored sugar-water
and garnished with a big glop of sweetened condensed milk. Yucchh! But the kids love them and I’m sure I probably did too.
