El Balconcito del Mosquito

El Balconcito del Mosquito Review

El Mosquito was the happening, fun bar at Pueblo de los Pescadores before a disastrous fire in spring 2012 devasted that complex. Instead of rebuilding, the owners found a new home as the beach bar at Porto, the fabulous beachfront restaurant belonging to Balcones del Atlantico. It is open daily from 11 am until midnight, offering a special menu from Porto to help cushion the sting of the house specialty—chupitos. Served in tall pony glasses, these drinks consist of a lethal dose of white rum mixed with flavors such as passion fruit (chinola) or—the best—ginger. On the weekends you may be treated to live music, and there is a rotating set of Las Terrenas art available to buy. Mainly, though, El Mosquito is a wonderful place to enjoy drinks on the beach and gaze up at the stars.
