When Nogui Acosta opened his bar in 1974, Tamarindo was a small town at the end of an unpaved road, without running water, phones or electricity. Blocks of ice were delivered on Thursday. Beer would stay cold until Saturday, and after that, the surfers who camped in front of the bar would drink their beer “au natural” – warm. Nogui Bar has expanded with the town, and now serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 6 days a week. Plan your day over breakfast as you check out the swell and hear the fishing report. Enjoy lunch in the welcoming shade under a cooling ceiling fan. Join the locals for cocktails and bocas and a front row seat on the beach for a beautiful Tamarindo sunset. Dinner specials include the best fish in town, surf and turf, kebabs, ceviche and shrimp tacos. Save room for Nogui’s famous cream pies.
