A friendly, laid back bar right on the beach. I took a taxi from the resort because this was on my "to do list" when we arrived at Playa Blanca. I was not disappointed. The ceiling has t-shirts and sports jerseys from all points in Canada. The staff is friendly and eager to please. I nursed a glass of wine... More

We stopped here for a cold drink while shopping. We were told that the had bar shirts so we made this stop a top priority. Unfortunately they did not, but they did have pricey drinks. Having paid $0.70 at the Super 99 for a Panama beer, it seemed that $3.50 was a lot to pay for the service and atmosphere.... More

We had walked into town from the resort and decided to go back along the beach we heard about woody's a "Canadian Bar" and discovered it on our walk. Was not overly crowded, a perfect place to stop and have a beer and bite and watch the ocean. Food was good and beer was cold!

We had a meal and drinks there, and the food was great, and so was the service. Reasonable prices. Unfortunately, it closed around 9pm, while we would have loved to stay longer at the bar. But they were really nice and let us take our time to leave.

Nice bar on the beach. Decorated in Canadian style-with flags and sports teams. Did not eat but enjoyed a cold beer or two. It was filled with tourists and expats-no locals.

We made a stop at Woody's on our vacation in April. Other hotel guests were bringing their guitars over so we took a cab and joined in the fun. Nice open air atmosphere filled with plenty of jerseys from home. The food and drinks were delicious and the service was friendly. Hands down order the strawberry daiquiri!

Very nice and friendly. Great booze, great food, great people. On the beach with a nice atmosphere. Nice homey feel for a bar so far away.
