    Very nice shop and lounge. Cigars were in excellent shape and all were genuine. The selection was very good. Was able to find my go to the Partagas short and also a few hard to find. R&J Churchill turbo as well as Por Lorangas. Seemed to be normal pricing for a LCDH store.
    Where they really impressed was the service in the lounge. Nothing better in the middle of the day than an espresso and a parti short. Have been to many cigar lounges but very impressed with this one. If I lived closer I would be there way to much.

    Awesome music, great owners and staff. El Garito's is the hot spot of Costa Rica! The owners and staff are fluent in spanish and english, very friendly and welcoming to all. If your looking for a fun, safe and friendly environment El Garito's is the place!!!
    Returned for another visit. El Garito's is better then ever! Something new, fun and exciting with every return. The owners are always upgrading and provide new exciting entertainment! Put El Garito's on your to do list, you will not be disappointed! Fun, exciting, the night life of Tamarindo! Thank you to all the staff and owners for a great time. See you soon!!

    We were glad to find this bar to be able to watch the NFL playoff games. Decent finger foods and drink selections for a sports bar. The atmosphere was really relaxing and warming.

    I meet a lot of cool people during the party, no matter where you are looking you are surrounded of the ocean, the sky and the green of the mountains of Manuel Antonio.

    Nice craft brewery in Uvita. Good selection of beers and efficient service. The rear patio is very quiet. We were there mid afternoon and it was laid back but looks like it has a night life.

    Great beach bar. This is where night life starts for most locals and beach goers. The bar is very casual with an open indoor atmosphere. There is a DJ there on Friday and Saturday. You will need a mask to get in but once inside it is not needed unless you choose to wear one.

    We really enjoyed learning about the sustainable practices and touring the beautiful property at Cafe Monteverde. Would recommend this tour to anyone who loves coffee!

    What a cool place! Hidden gem. I saw the colorful sign and I was intrigued, so I stopped by with my kids. The owner was warm and welcoming, and very relaxed. We had a lovely conversation. No pressure to buy anything, just walk around, take pictures of the beautiful art, and chat with a nice artist, plus the coffee was great.

    Don't just take a picture of the front, go inside and check out the rooms, and take a minute to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in a unique environment. My kids also loved it.

    What a truly magical experience! The setup was stunning and worth it. Leti is an incredible host that really made sure we enjoyed the experience.

    100% would do again! I surprised my fiancé with this experience and she absolutely loved it.

    We walked here from the Riu one day to check it out. No monkeys that day, but great hospitality, good food and amazing drinks. Do be careful and keep track of your bill.

    Great workouts. The trainers are great! Open air gym with equipment. The trainers walk you through exercises and then you work you way through the sets with the encouragement of the trainers.

    On my second night in Tamarindo, I met a couple of people, who were visiting the town for the third time, and they suggested the Higher Ground, as a starting point for the evening. When I entered, I thought i was at a local rooftop bar in NY. They have a dart board, pool tables, and a card table. If you're interested in having a game night with beer, pizza (was excellent), and music..The Higher Ground is your place.
