Puerto Viejo de Limon, Costa Rica has a bar scene that seems straight from another era, one that time forgot. There are no swank lounges nor hipster bars to belly up to, instead, there are good old fashioned bars, mostly across from the beach, where one can enjoy a cold beverage and befriend fellow travelers and locals over conversation. The Lazy Mon at Standfords is a landmark beach bar perched on the water's edge near the center of town. Well known for its live music on Sundays, ping pong tables, and good drink specials at happy hour, the Lazy Mon also serves bar food and plays a good mix of music. The little Bar Maritza, just across from the beach near the north entrance to town, boasts a small dance floor with a disco ball, and good music for dancing while drinking. Koki Beach is the newest and hippest beach bar to make the scene, and its prime location overlooking "Old Harbor" couldn't be more perfect for lounging in custom Adirondack chairs and sipping ice cold Imperials. Along the road heading south, you can choose from Amimodo and De Paso for drinks at a table with your toes in the sand.
