Manuel Antonio and the Central Pacific Coast Restaurants

The Backyard Bar

Fodor's Review

Playa Hermosa's original nightlife spot has two seating areas, each with its own bar. Television sets on the wraparound bar in the front room show sports matches and surf videos. A wooden deck in back overlooking the beach is great for lunch and sunset, mostly because of the pleasant sea breezes and view of the surfers. The usual bar food—Tex-Mex standards and burgers—is complemented by fresh seafood, including ceviche, grilled tuna, lobster, and jumbo shrimp. It's

popular especially on Saturday, when there's a surf contest at 4 pm and live music at 6 pm.
