Now my father and I speak Spanish and our family is respectful, and this was not our first visit to Costa Rica, so we did not misinterpret their meaning. They. Did. Not. Like. Us. Drinks took an hour waitress was a b****, and was more out of place in this beautiful country than we were. ¡Tomido un mierdo en tu... More

We had some drinks over here. And we played with some cats, who were a bit bity. After watching for several minutes, the bar-lady came towards us, handed us another cat : "Here... this one might be easier!"

When you're on the beach you just want something easy and simple. A nice cold drink, a good snack. The place is in front of the beach, beautiful location. maybe need to work a bit on the appearance and the quality of food.

This is the worst establishment in Playas Del Coco, hands down. I have never had such bad service in my life. I believe that the waitresses here are the rudest people I have ever met anywhere. The restaurant is disgustingly dirty. The bathrooms are horrible. This is so uncharacteristic of Costa Rica. I suppose if you were strictly there to... More

We happened upon this fun atmosphere to have our first meal upon our arrival. Yummy food, good prices, wonderful ambience, and perfect location on the beach.

Right on the beach at Playa del Coco. Good selection of food and resonable prices. The location is great, and close to shopping.

One night someone confiscated my beer while I was in the restroom. The bar didn't believe I deserved a free one. That is the end of my visits to Beach Bums forever. Even though I did enter one night to photograph a would be 'entertainer' , BB. Not impressed with his attitude or his music.

I would consider this a bar more than a restaurant but regardless, this is a must see in Coco Beach. The service staff is friendly and attentive and the locals who hang out here are quick to give advice on what to do and see in the area. Thursday night has a live band with dancing which brings with it... More

One of your best and most affordable beachfront options. Open air and plenty of space. Lovely and friendly young servers, albeit a bit odd. But you can always rely on Charlie! A very affordable and extensive happy hour -- damn near all day! Pool table and occassional live music shows.
