I would not recommend this place at all. I was asked tonight in the toilet to buy one Carribean-looking guy a beer. Then I met him again at the bar and then lost 50USD from my hand with which I wanted to pay for beer...More

Don't expect a high end bar, Tamarindo is a surfers spot so this is a very relaxed bar. flip flop shorts, go to the bar to get your drink, but we had a great night

We were told that each night in Tamarindo "the place" to go changes. The Friday night we were there, we saw a fire show which was amazing and there was also salsa and hip hop. Although I did see others say it's a young crowd,...More
