I went on a trip to jaco beach this October with a couple buddies for the first time and had a blast! Stumbled upon a new opening called Moonshines and it was awesome. They manager Gabe said the owners are guys from New York City and you could tell by the tunes and girls dancing on bar. Easy going spot. Still had some kinks to work out with operation but overall loved it. And the fact they had beer pong and flip cup won we over in the first 5 minutes. Best of luck hope to be back for sun and fun soon!!
