It´s 9pm you just get out of the restaurant with your friends and you are looking for a nice place to hang out, have a few drinks (or a lot, depending on your goals) and practice your dance skills which sounds like a real plan. However, a question remain : What is the right place for that?
The thing you need to know about going out in Tamarindo is that each bar is known for having his own day. Even if there are normally open full week, you don’t want to be in Pacifico on friday when it’s ladies night at monkey’s Bar. No rules though, you can go wherever you want, just keep in mind that a bar will have more life one night then the next day  it will be another one..the rotation is on point! So here the not so secret schedule of Tamarindo night life:
On monday and saturday the Aqua is the place where a lot of locals are going, not my favorite but if you want to dance till 6AM this is where to go on those day.
Tuesday will be Karaoke night at Sharky’s, it doesn’t matter if you can’t sing like Ariana Grande or Ed Sheeran, just take the mic and ask the dj to play your favorite sonng, a really a friendly vibe here. 
Thursday night is reggae night at Pacifico, each week a dj will come and make you move your body on some sweet reaggae – dancehall – reggaeton music.
Friday is well known for its ladies night at Monkey’s bar where you can dance on a good selection of hip hop music outside by the pool. Inside the bar you will have a real latina dance experience with a live band playing some classics of bachatta, salsa, merengue…
Concerning Sunday, nothing better than watching the sunset with a beer or a smoothie at Baquero Bar located in front of the beach just 10 feets from our partner Kelly’s surf shop…after 2 months here I never got tired of it, simply Pura Vida.
