Getting the Best Out of Costa Rican Nightlife

by Kristen White Blogger
Undoubtedly, Costa Rica’s highlights can be best enjoyed during the day. From sublime beaches, incredible National Parks, to a myriad of adventurous activities, you will often be drained of energy by nightfall. Or would you? In reality, being away from mundane everyday life can revamp your energy levels. When you are in one of the most spectacular countries in the world, there is no reason to leave the nighttime to go unexplored. Here is an insight into Costa Rica’s vibrant nightlife.

What Is On Offer and Where?

The nightlife in Costa Rica is as wild and electric as its natural wonders. Trendy nightclubs, laid-back bars, live music joints, chilled out cigar rooms, and dance parties are held everywhere. As such, there are no specifics on the best time of the year to go to Costa Rica. You can visit this amazing country anytime! Naturally, bigger cities host bigger parties and have much vibrant nightlife. 

You can visit San Jose, the Costa Rican capital, for some nocturnal adventure. It boasts of some of the best nighttime hubs like San Pedro that is revered by backpackers and students. The Gringo Gulch is loved for its karaoke, live music, and heavy party atmosphere. Seaside towns like Jaco are also quite popular. Bars in Jaco Costa Rica have the reputation of being the wild-child of the country’s nightlife. Other areas like Quepos is known to be a subdued party town that is renowned for its fantastic live jazz clubs.

Socializing With Locals

The local population in Costa Rica are party lovers in general. Nothing better can pump their mood than good music, dancing and having a fun time with friends. Being so extrovert and friendly, don’t be surprised if you get dragged by locals on to the dance floor! They simply love to whirl around and share their nightlife adventures with vacationers. 

Don’t know Salsa or merengue? Worry not because visiting bars in Jaco Costa Rica or any night clubs will have you dancing to the foot-tapping salsa music. Get ready to catch some steps with the locals who are some of the best dancers in the Caribbean. The locals here are proud dancers and love to flaunt their dancing skills. So, don’t be alarmed if locals ask you to dance.

Take Some Lessons on Dancing

Every major town or city in Costa Rica offers opportunities to perfect your dance moves. You can find many clubs and restaurants that offer free dance sessions before the night’s party can get into full swing. Many all-inclusive resorts also offer daytime dance lessons when you decide to take some time out from the excursions. So, all set to indulge in some salsa dancing? Fun, easy, and incredible dance classes in Costa Rica makes every day as the best time of the year to go to Costa Rica

Know the Deal

It is probably worth mentioning that the Costa Rican nightclubs differ from the nightclubs found in the rest of the world. Here, a club means a dance club while a nightclub is nothing but a strip club. So, it really helps to keep this in mind before asking for recommendations from the locals. Couples or singles frequent the strip clubs in Costa Rica.

Nevertheless, they are not entirely undesirable as in other parts of the world.  While you are enjoying at a bar, know that the Costa Rican law prohibits public drinking. So, you can enjoy the cocktails and beer inside licensed premises only. Don’t be fooled by seeing locals enjoy a beer at the beach or park without being fined. The same lax attitude may not be extended to tourists.

Irrespective of where you are anchored in Costa Rica, the country’s nightlife never fails to amaze you. Bars and clubs here offer a truly varied nightlife with best cocktails and music. Don’t forget to get a taste of this fantastic lifestyle on your visit to Costa Rica.
