“BEST Frozen drinks in Jaco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

You cannot beat the lunch special from 11-2 daily! Our group spent entirely too much time at Surf Dogs during our week stay in Jaco. The staff are very friendly and the service is EXCELLENT, which we found to be a rarity in Jaco. The Manager was very informative and really made us feel at home. The free WiFi was super fast and a major plus. This place is conveniently located towards the middle of the main strip, so it's a great place to stop and cool off on a hot sunny day. Surf Dogs was easily our favorite happy hour spot! Pina Colda with an extra shot of Guarro!!!

“Awesome drinks and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My sister and I visited this place a couple of times because we liked it so much. The staff was nice and spoke English and Spanish. They had great food and drinks for a decent price. There were some Costa Rican food options as well as some more American food options. They also have free WiFi!

“Great food and drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Loved the fried plantains and bean dip with their own special homemade hot sauce. The beer was always cold and they had a good selection of mixed drinks. Great place to connect to wifi and check your email.

“Chill spot with awesome staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Just got back from a 7 day trip to Jaco with a group of 15 people and we were in Surf Dogs at least once, if not twice a day! Food and drinks are good but best part about it is the awesome staff. They can speak Spanish and English and made sure we had fun every night we were there! Most def hit Surf Dogs when in Jaco a chill spot with cool people :) and they have wifi, video games, and a fuse ball table that we all got a lot of use out of!
