“Great atmosphere!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stopped in town during a stay at the RIU in Guanacaste. We stopped here for a drink which led to 2 and then a free shot on the house. The staff was excellent and very attentive to our needs. We didn't eat there during our trip, but it was a lot of fun!!! I would recommend stopping by here for a drink if you are in town.

“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Lizard Lounge is ok-the food is pretty average and it's not too expensive. Strange items though-mayo on a burrito? Not too good

“Bland food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We ate here our first night in Coco because it was one of the first places we came across. We both ordered traditional casados with chicken; they were one of the cheapest items on the menu at around $6. Other entrees (pizza, steaks, chicken dishes) were easily double the price. The food was incredibly bland. These were definitely the worst casados we had on our trip - and considering we ate them at almost every meal, that is saying something. We then went back on a Saturday night to dance. I liked the music (mostly Latin pop), but expect a crowd if you go there on a Saturday. The dance floor was packed and there wasn't much room to move around. It was 3500 colones for 2 rum & cokes.

“Open air bar and food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice open atmosphere bar with good sound system, that serves food too. This place is right across the street from the Zi Lounge, so the nightlife will be in this area on most nights.

“Hooker Haven”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

You can sure get your drink on here and will lose your hearing in the process....Ladies night (ladies drink free from 7-11) brings out the finest in everyone and the music is blaring and uncomfortable.

Had a drunken gentleman host or bouncer (who knows), wearing a Lizard Lounge polo approach me, and my friend, identify himself as an employee of the Lizard Lounge saying that he could "get beautiful woman to make sex".

When I showed him my wedding ring, he said sorry and moved on. Come to find out from our taxi driver that hookers hang out here (especially on Wednesday nights) and for all those who are interested, it costs $100. He said it was a ripoff, that those were tourist prices and that you could go to San Jose and get it for $20....good to know!!

Just saying....

Pura Vida
