Went twice to this bar which is located in south of the island. To get to the bar from north point takes 5-7 k pesos for mototaxi. However, it could be more convenient to rent motorbike and to come there. In this bar you can...More

On our third day at Old Providence, we went to Manzanillo Beach. It ranked first in our family review. Beautiful light blues and turquoise colors, framed with the brighter blue Coral Reef colors and white crushing waves on the horizon. Not as shallow and calm...More

Sit by the ocean, eating a local dish, with the music on and the locals hanging out having fun. The food is good. The beer is cold and the mood is laid back. This is cool reggae restaurant/bar!

This is a great spot on a beautiful beach, tucked away. However, don’t fall for the Friday night live music — they charge 10K for cover and the music isn’t at all worth it. Maybe go to Tom’s corner and then head over here later...More
