It seems that everyone at the Republika Bar was friendly and had a story to tell. I enjoyed the food and the conversations. Went back for a second try and was glad I did. No view of the ocean, but worth trying to find.

Description
Republika is the Cheers Bar of San Juan del Sur, where everybody knows your name. We are located directly in between the Central Mercado and Barrio Cafe, right in the middle of San Juan. A great local ex-pat and travelers hang-out. Come in and get the skinny on the local scene, the surf, and other activities to keep you going on your vacation.

Our weekly line-up looks like this/ Tuesday is Trivia Night, Wednesday we have a Texas Hold Em game, Thursday Night Cocktail specian, Friday we host Name That Tune.

We have the Coldest Beers in town and the Stiffest mixed drinks to go along with em. We also have a great food menu with delicious Belgian waffles, great tacos, ribeyes and T-Bones
