Most of the large resorts here have a variety of bars, and a few feature nightly entertainment revues or live bands. In general, Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, and the Papagayo peninsula are very laid-back and fairly spread out. For a mellow cocktail on an open-air deck, head for Ginger ★★ or Los Sueños ★ restaurants on a night the band is playing (ask). For a livelier bar and club scene, many visitors head to Playa del Coco.
