Disco balls and DIs light up the dance floor in Costa Rica, where some of the world's finest international talents may be found spinning beats or playing a live set. In the capital city of San José, a dress code is usually enforced, so ditch the jeans for a night at Club Twister at El Pueblo, a hacienda-style string of more than a hundred establishments under a red tiled roof. A diverse set of DJs spin everything danceable under the sun at Club Vertigo. On the other side of the city, Miraflores Disco Club has been the place to dance for more than forty years; its doors are only open after 9pm and on weekends- dance to the beats of two different DJs until the sun comes up in picturesque Heredia. For live music, the Jazz Cafe in Escazu boasts an impressive roster of international performers in a hip new venue. On the Caribbean coast, wear your flip-flops for taking in Puerto Viejo de Limon's most happening nightlife. Drink up happy hour cocktails at the Cafe Mango, find fellow night birds on the dance floor at Johnny's Place, and practice your ping-pong game at the Lazy Mon at Stanford's, where two for one tequila shots at happy hour and live jams on Sundays are highlights.
