Great local bar with very friendly service. Prices are reasonable with a great bar menu. Gets busy a night but overall a great day time place to hang out and meet new friends and stay out of the rain.

It's a pretty boring bar, we swung by briefly one night in December on our way to the local clubs. Locals say this is the place to pick up girls, you know, the kind you pay for... I would avoid it if you're looking for a funky bar. Stay in the center of town, there is a ton to do... More

I go down every year in March for my birthday. This year I happen to go to the bar for the first time. I went to the bar with my buddy. I ordered a beer from the guy behind the bar and stated I would be right back. When I got back my buddy told me that we had to... More

September 2011 The most famous place in Jaco. Its so well known that it does not appear on advertising supported maps or guides (it prints it's own). The bar and the accompanying hotel are famous for prostitutes. We entered the bar around 7:45 on a Wednesday night in the rainy season. There were around five women in the bar and... More

Fun bar, $12 cover charge, full of guys looking for "pay for play" with the locals. Good music, cigars, and a fun atmosphere. They serve food, but it's really a take-out place to bring a local back to your hotel with you, or use their short-stay hotel next door. It is legal in Costa Rica, so if you plan to... More

When people want to go to that bar they know what they are going for. There are a lot of bars in costa rica where people can go to get a drink. If they are going to that bar it is not for the drink, it is to find a hot girl that is a lot cheaper than anywhere else... More

The Beatle Bar used to be a really cool kind of open air place to enjoy a SLIGHTLY overpriced libation in the afternoon and maybe be approached by "Muheres de la Noche" in the evening who weren't pushy about it or a local girl looking for a new boyfriend. Then, about four years ago, a new owner took over and... More
