“Fun location!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We are regular visitors to this lovely bar over the ocean! Great views, good drinks and our son spent many hours sitting is a tyre tube floating in the water while drinks were delivered to him and his friends! The bar snacks are OK and absorb the alcohol!

“Right over the water!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Fun bar with great food. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea look down to see schools of jack, permit and other sea life.

“Incredible location”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

This place is north of the toll bridge heading north out of San Pedro town. It's a nice place to ride a bike to during the day. You can even ride up the beach most of the way, except for the bridge.

Located at the end of a pier, this place was awesome for checking out passing boats and staring into the aqua blue world below. We even saw a pair of large gray stingrays pass underneath the restaurant.

The drinks were refreshing (watermelon juice!). Definitely a tourist hotspot. You can even float in inner tubes while enjoying a drink, if you want.

The smoked chicken wings had good flavor but were really small. The tacos didn't have many ingredients and left much to be desired.

Great for the view and drinks, though not a top value.

“Bar with great view”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Palapa Bar is over the toll bridge on the north side of San Pedro. We rented a golf cart to get there. It can be very warm in the afternoon so this is a very cool spot on piers over the water. But it is small so it can get very crowded. Drinks were good and cold. It a person is really hot, they have an area with inner tubes so you can drink while in the water,
