Coco’s Bar ★, a classic Rasta painted Caribbean watering hole and restaurant at the main crossroads in town, has traditionally been the place to while away the nights (and days, for that matter). Cold beer and very loud reggae and soca music are the lures. Just across the street, the two-story Ricky’s Bar tries to give Coco’s a run for its money, and many people ping-pong between the two. Toward the park entrance, the National Park Restaurant has a popular bar, with loud music and dancing on most nights during the high season and on weekends during the off-season. Out toward Playa Negra, the Reggae Bar ★ has a convivial vibe, with thumping tropical tunes blasting most nights. For gamesters, there’s Splash (tel. 8889-9668), a restaurant and sports bar in the center of the village. Splash has billiard and foosball tables, as well as regular movie and karaoke nights, live bands, and DJs. It also has a small swimming pool open to restaurant guests, and is especially refreshing on hot afternoons, although it’s often tempting to late-night revelers as well.
