A few days ago I visited Tamarindo and people advised us to visit Sharkys, I loved the drinks and the music. Luis, the bartender was really cool and thoughtful; I strongly recommend you this place if you want to have fun. The California burger rocks!

Great place to have a beer, enjoy a little TV (at the time we were watching soccer/football) and chilling out after a long day surfing.

We went here twice for drinks at night. Lots of good drinks and many TVs for sports junkies. Many people watching Costa Rica beat Panama and the U.S. beat Honduras. The bartenders were very nice...great mixed drinks!

Great atmosphere and horrible karaoke singers. The attention from the bartender, el chamo, was spot on and never spent more than three minutes waiting for a drink. Had a great time with friends and even stayed outside of the bar even after they closed.

Description
In 2008, when Sharky’s founders Ben and Katie opened their bar in Tamarindo, it was because they saw something was missing. Tamarindo was a melting pot (sometimes literally) of locals and travelers from all over the world.

Yet there was no place to come together and watch the world’s sports. Well, no place that had every game on earth. No place to gather and enjoy the victories over an ice-cold beer. No place to suffer together through the heartbreaks (and have an extra shot to ease the pain.) So Sharky’s was born.

In 2010, a terrible fire destroyed the original Sharky’s and two of their neighboring businesses. It was a very sad day. But there was never a question that Sharky’s would gather its strength and rebuild. There were too many passionate and devoted fans. Too much love for the fun.

Later that year, with an amazing group of friends, customers and supporters, we re-built Sharky’s into a new vibrant reef. Stronger, faster, and even more fun.

Today, through hard work and good spirit, Sharky’s has become a Tamarindo standard. Whenever you’re in town, come on over to the shark tank. Pretty much every night you know it will be...
