Puerto Viejo comes to life at sunset. The Caribbean music is played in outdoor bars and restaurants, with many choices of gourmet food and drinks.
- Tex Mex is conveniently located close to Joya de Costa Rica in the town of Puerto Viejo. Tex Mex is a big open-air spot on a corner of the main intersection facing the beach. During the day, it’s a simple café to enjoy a hot cup of espresso or a fresh fruit smoothie. Once the sun goes down, the cocktails and party goers come out. With its happy hour of two-for-one cocktails and free admission on “ladies night,” Tex Mex bills itself as, “the most dangerous bar in town.” This establishment is also one of the best spots to catch sports events on the flat screen TVs around the bar.
- Johnny’s Place is a landmark dance club, also located in Puerto Viejo. For more than a decade, this establishment has been pumping up roots, reggae, and dancehall beats and serving up strong drinks at decent prices; making it a recipe for a great night out.
This fun and casual place makes it the perfect place to have few drinks, mingle with locals and tourists, and dance. Café Mango makes it easy to unwind with the view of the beach and drink specials such as $1 Tequila and Guaro shots, rotating DJs, and free cocktail hours for ladies.
