Fodor's Expert Review Macabuca Oceanside Tiki Bar
This classic beach bar has a huge deck over the water, thatched roof, amazing mosaic murals of waves, spectacular sunsets (and sunset-color libations), and tiki torches illuminating the reef fish come evening. Macabuca means "What does it matter?" in the indigenous Antillean Taíno language, perfectly encapsulating the mellow vibe. Big-screen TVs, live bands and DJs on weekends, excellent pub grub, and daily specials (CI$9 jerk dishes weekends; Monday all-night happy hour, DJ, and CI$17 all-you-can-eat barbecue) lure everyone from well-heeled loafers to barefoot bodysurfers animatedly discussing current events and dive currents in a Babel of tongues.
