With so many fresh and exotic fruits available around the lake, getting your vitamin fix is easier than ever. At Saya La Papaya in San Marcos, however, you can get more than just vitamins. You also get an unforgettable taste sensation, courtesy of nature's bounty.

Smoothies and Fresh Juice

Saya La Papaya is a smoothie and juice bar in San Marcos and here you don't just get served some fruit blended with ice and sugar. Instead, the combinations are creative and what's on the menu depends on what's fresh from the market. For example, pineapple can be mixed with refreshing mint and chia seeds while orange and strawberry juice gets a luxuriously creamy texture with the addition of some avocado.

A great alternative to your morning cuppa is a smoothie made with coffee, cacao and banana. Unusual juices that might be on the menu include spinach or a carrot, beet and ginger combination.If you need something you can get your teeth into, Saya La Papaya also serves a range of bagels and sandwiches.

For a more substantial meal, try the vegetarian chili served with crispy wholewheat bread. Craving something sweet? Then grab a donut or two. You can enjoy your meal right here or take it to go.

Saya La Papaya is open every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Find it in San Marcos along the main path that leads to the park.
