Taste of Papagayo 2018 – Hotel La Puerta del Sol and Garden Bar

First of all we want to apologize for not posting more newsletters lately but in all honesty we are busy selling real estate and so often these things get pushed down the priority list.  Tank Tops Flip Flops has also been actively on the ground doing community fundraising events through our Custom one off design T Shirt sales that, with the help of all of you, have raised a tremendous amount of money for our small but tight knit community we call the Papagayo.  Check out our Tank Tops Flip Flops Facebook Page to see the various community events that we have gotten behind and that you can be a part of in the future.

Taste of Papagayo 2018

One of the projects we were recently involved with was the Taste of Papagayo 2018.  If you did not attend it was a wildly successful food tasting festival with 18 different Papagayo Area Restaurants, 3 live bands and a whole lot of good fun.  The event was hosted at Hotel La Puerta del Sol and The Garden Bar and organized by Devon Pickering and Michele Simmons.  Tank Tops and Flip Flops created unique T Shirts just for the event of which part of the proceeds went towards supporting the Coco Community Project.

Peninsula Papagayo Restaurants is an insider’s guide to GOOD Restaurants!  We know your top priority is to find the best places to eat while you are here.  Forget Trip Advisor – We have gone to each of these Restaurants multiple times and know the menus well.  You will be surprised how many good Restaurants there are in our small little area we call the Papagayo.  We also included Fast Food joints and local markets. ENJOY!

One of my favorite Papagayo Peninsula restaurants

PLAYAS DEL COCO

Note:  Playas del Coco has so many Restaurants that we had to split the maps by sections:  Downtown, Uptown, La Chorrera, Other and Outside Area.

DOWNTOWN:

DONDE CLAUDIO Y GLORIA: This adorable little fish place is located right ON THE SAND, just 50 meters north of the main drag. A delightful place to go and people watch, at any time of the day, but is especially perfect for sunset dinner. They have just about every type of seafood imaginable, and it is always fresh. I have never had a bad meal here yet. BEST SEAFOOD in town. ENJOY.  9 ON DOWNTOWN MAP

COCONUTZ: YES it is a sports bar with about a dozen TVs, but they have more than just bar food. They have a full menu of just about anything you might want to eat, and a great pizza too and of course the BEST Coconut shrimp. They also have a great Microbrewery in the bar called Angry Goats Brewery. Coconutz is a wonderful place to see Monkeys at 5pm as they are swinging through the trees above; cover your nachos, just in case. Wednesday they have all you can eat, pizza, pasta and salad, along with a movie night, and there is live music many evenings of the week. One of my favorite hangouts for sure; lots of fun. GO GIANTS!!!!  1 ON DOWNTOWN MAP

Zi LOUNGE: Serving lunch and dinner, this open air bar has a huge delicious menu, and a perfect place to people watch on the street. He has the BEST steak tacos too! There is wood burned oven pizza, as good as any you have had in other places in the world, and many nights there is live music. After 10 pm this is the place to be, as it becomes a full blown night club, with VIP section and table side service and DJ. The original Chili Guaro inventor, this is a great place for shots too!!!! Thursday is Ladies Night, so come on down and check it out.  2 ON DOWNTOWN MAP

JOHAN BISTRO: Just before you get to the beach, on the main drag, is this great little Bistro. Fantastic designer sandwiches, served on incredible homemade breads, and the display is right out of a magazine; crepes and sushi are also on the menu. They have a huge selection of yummy smoothies and health drinks as well to wash it all down; BEST sandwiches in town. I love this place!!!  O ON DOWNTOWN MAP
