Popular/Fun Bars in Manuel Antonio/Quepos?

Hi,

Three young girls going to M.A. in one week... can you recommend some fun bars, popular spots, for nightlife?

Thanks

Bambu Jam - live music. Once a week its Latino Music. Can't remember if it is Thursdays or Fridays. Its about 1 km from Quepos on the road to MA. Lots of people, dancing etc.

Dos Locos - in Quepos - live music usually on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Gato Negro in casitas eclipse - Jazz on Mondays - Fuzzy Rojas and Leo. Other live entertainment on other nights.

I think El Avion has music and dancing.

For a sunset drinks - Barba Roja, Sal Si Puedes.

Have not been there but friends say that Gaia is really nice (and surprisingly reasonable) for drinks and Tapas.

There is a disco in town - Arco Iris. However, I am not sure what it is like.

Ask your hotel as different things often turn up. Also try to pick up a free copy of Quepolandia the local publication.

Mar y Sombra is the best place to go. Its right on the ocean and we found it was the most hopping spot.... lots of hot tico's. Dos Locos was ok, El Avion is ok late at night... and Arco Iris is good late late at night, like when you get bored at 2am venture over there.

Plum,

You obviously have not been to MA for a few months. Unfortunately Mar y Sombra was demolished (actually half of it is still standing) due to a dispute with the municipality. Part of it was beyond the "Zona Maritima: Anyway - the place used to "rock" and the owners say they hope to rebuild something. However in the meantime, it is no longer an option.

That is very sad! I have so many fun memories there.
