Costa Rica/Playa Flamingo is most appreciated for its stunning scenery and its tranquil evenings. Therefore, visitors who are seeking nightlife will notice that Flamingo offers a few options for those who prefer to stay close to home‐base. For true party goers, the best option is to grab a taxi for $25‐$30 and head to Tamarindo. There you will find the action! That being said, here are a few options for Playa Flamingo’s night life activities.
Flamingo Beach Hotel Casino
Any visitor eighteen years and older can test their luck at the beautiful Flamingo Casino, where they feature an electronic roulette wheel, several Vegas style slot machines, and video poker.
They are open every day from 7:00pm to 2:00am, though hours of operation may vary occasionally.
Spreader Bar (The Marlin Inn Restaurant)
The Spreader Bar is a great place to meet and chat with both Ticos and fellow travelers. They are regularly serving up large delicious portions of local and American influenced dishes. The food is always tasty and the beers are always cold.
If you happen to be visiting Playa Flamingo during the New Year or in February, Spreader Bar hosts a New Years Eve and Mardi Gras party with great live music, a guitarist, drummers and feathered dancers.
The Monkey Bar
Watch your favorite game on one of the 50 inch flat screens and take a dip in their swim‐up‐bar.
Every Monday through Friday the Monkey Bar features a happy hour from 5pm to 7pm.
They offer 2X1 rum and coke, vodka cranberry, or a glass of red or white wine.
