You don't come here just for a meal - you come for the music and dancing. There's no cover charge or minimum, although everybody I saw there did order food.
The owner of Latitude 21 took what appears to have once been a derelict house and has transformed it into a restaurant and venue for live music and dance. The food is good and well-prepared (although in my opinion they could stand to kick the seasoning up a notch), the service is friendly, and most staff members either are American so there's no language barrier (if that's a concern for you). The house specialty seems to be ribs, which are cooked outside and served in generous portions. I had a "small" portion and found it to be plenty big - and I'm not a small guy. At times I saw waiters circulating with baskets full of ribs, offering additional portions.
Make a reservation - if you don't, on a busy night they may be able to squeeze you in but it can fill up. Also, when you call you can find out what type of music they will be presenting that evening. They don't try to turn over tables - they want you to eat, drink and spend the night. If you look like you might be thinking about leaving early you can expect somebody to tell you how many sets are left, and to encourage you to stay and listen.
Different nights feature different bands and events, and some bands have pretty strong followings. The night after we were there, they were hosting salsa dancing, and they offered free lessons in the morning to anybody who showed up - no need to even promise to come by for the evening's event.
We were probably the youngest couple present. Many of the regulars have been coming to Guayabitos for years or decades, and much of the crowd was of retirement age, but on the dance floor they gave meaning to "young at heart". They were there to have fun, and they were a lot of fun. It's a place to let your hair down.
