Tamboo is a bit of a tourist bar located on the south end of Sandy Beach and right in the heart of the Puntas area. In 2011 their deck was washed away and the new and improved one is larger with more seating and a second story that features couches and a fantastic view of the ocean.
I recommend going there during the day if you are lying out on Sandy Beach or in the evening for live music. The mojitos are top notch, although they ran out of mint during the Christmas break in 2012. At night they have affordable drink specials, typically on Bacardi rum and local beers such as Medalla.
The food used to be bad, but the last time I went, I was pleasantly surprised. The fish wrap was great, especially for $9, and my girlfriend's salad looked tasty as well. Perhaps with a new deck came a new chef/menu. All of their food is reasonably priced.
On the weekend nights, Puerto Ricans and tourists alike flock to Tamboo from all over to enjoy the DJ's and good drink deals. The place gets fairly packed and is a lot of fun.
Honestly, any time is a great time at Tamboo. The bartenders are always friendly, the drinks cold and the atmosphere at the edge of the beach cannot be beat. Just don't go there looking for the sunset as it faces the wrong direction.
