My friends and I stopped by Republika Bar on a Monday evening after meeting the owner, Juliette, that day on a catamaran sail. On top of the delicious, reasonably-priced comfort food (veggie-friendly options too!), this bar has incredible house-made infused rums (including ginger and coffee) that really hit the spot after a few days of only Toñas. The bar hosts... More

It seems that everyone at the Republika Bar was friendly and had a story to tell. I enjoyed the food and the conversations. Went back for a second try and was glad I did. No view of the ocean, but worth trying to find.
