Description
The Point...A different kind of Sports Bar.Sure we have sports on all (7) of our T.V's all the time...and sure we have hot wings and (U.S.D.A. beef) burgers...and sure we have ice cold beer and micro brew on tap, but did you know that we have local Caribbean cuisine made by the best chef south of Nicaragua? Check out our open air restaurant/bar located on Black Beach, steps to the Caribbean Sea. A local hangout where tourists and locals come together to have a good ol' time. So on your next visit to Puerto Viejo, top on by and say hi ya'll (before Paradise, we lived in New Orleans). We will keep a seat warm, a cold beer, your favorite game on, and a fun time waiting for you!
