San Pedro is a great town to bar-crawl, since everything is within walking distance. Most of the nightlife is strung along the main trail, or "Gringo Trail." On any night you might find things happening at El Barrio (tel. 502/5577-2601), the Alegre Pub (tel. 502/7721-8100), the Buddha (www.thebuddhaguatemala.com), or Freedom (tel. 502/5392-5942). Most tourists and language students tend to do a simple pub-crawl and congregate at whichever spot is most happening on that night. El Barrio and the Alegre Pub shoot for an Anglo-American pub vibe, and the Alegre Pub shows American sporting events, including Sunday afternoon American football. Freedom and the Buddha have a more European feel, and both sometimes have live music, which might be anything from rock to Latin Folk to folk or reggae.
