I was in Jaco Feruary 2016 and stopped by the Beatle Bar for a cold beer. The guy a couple of seats down was eating some chicken wings and they smelled great so I had some. While they are no traditional Buffalo wings they are really good. Since then I have had their burritos and a couple other things on... More

Gave this places many chances, but it got worse every time. There's nothing special about beatle bar, it's old, not very clean, and not much fun. The drinks are surprisingly overpriced, and I was not impressed with the service.

Great bar because always a friendly mixture of expats, sport fishermen, local women, couples & turistas. All the sport events on satellite TV hookup. Bartenders friendly & attentive service. Owners are there everyday so if any question or concern they glad to make it right. Separate entrance & a rear bar section has evening music late into night. Good bar... More

This was a Top Spot in Jaco a few years ago so I was expecting the same thing this past summer. Well, if it wasn't for the Bartenders I would go somewhere else. Needless to say, we were there 4 different times during our stay. Yes there are Working girls, but there is nothing wrong with conversation. They will move... More

It has been 5 years since I've been to Beatle Bar, but went back last week. I really like it now. It is really a true bar and not the dark ladies of the night place it used to be. There are still a few girls that come by, but now it is about getting a drink and watching a... More

This place was okay. Take note the club is open and very humid. There are prostitutes everywhere, so be warned. The music is Spanish based and the crowd is mellow. You can play pool and have a few drinks. It gets a bit crowded around 1am. It's a cool place.

Been a while since I was there ....but I'm pretty sure they're not concerned about selling beers in this place. It's like a reverse strip club...the attraction is you. The walls are lined with hookers, as soon as you sit down...they swarm around you...'you, no happy?' It's usually a 10 to 1 hooker to bar patron ratio. Its dirty, dark... More

I went here with my boyfriend on March, we arrived to Jacó at 9 am and we were starving. This place looked nice, so we went for breakfast. I must say that I was not disappointed at all. It's delicious!!! And the price is worth it too. The owner was very nice and polite. The service was also great. The... More

The Beatle Bar has been a landmark in Jaco a long time. In fact I remember it from my first time in Jaco back in 2008. This is Jaco's version of Cheers, a bar where everybody knows your name and always glad you came. There is beer, wine, and shots of alcohol available. They also have a food menu, so... More

Pros. Nice bar with great ceiling fans to keep you cooled down. Bartenders are honest and nice. Location is great in town. Prices were good. Cons. Many prostitutes as I believe Jaco is filled to the brim with them all over the streets and in bars. Gun shots heard down the street about 3 to be exact. It took police... More
