Good food and drinks AND with beach access. Great place to go, grab a drink, and enjoy the beach or sunset while in the "Backyard."

We spent the better part of an afternoon here, good quality and also inexpensive food and drinks here. We stayed after lunch for a walk on the beach and a surfing competition that was cool to see, friendly staff. Beware the "mind eraser " drink but the name does say it all so......

This is the place to go when you visit Costa Rica!!! There is no other beach bar quite like this, anywhere. I come here every year and every time it's better. The food is excellent, especially the breakfast. I could eat every meal of the day here as it's some of the best food I've ever had, very fresh. Also... More

The food was really good and reasonably priced. The beer was especially good because it was hot and dusty where we had just returned from. The staff was friendly and we felt welcomed.

This is your typical beach front bar. My favorite thing about this place is the awesome surf competitions and community that gathers every Saturday evening. Great place to grab a cold one and watch some locals rip!

The Backyard Bar was fantastic! We went there many times during our vacation. The atmosphere is chill and inviting. Their ceviche was a favorite, and don't forget to try their signature shots! The yoga class in the morning was a cherry on top.

Visited during a trip with friends and had an amazing time! We were able to watch a local surf competition on the beach and hear some great bands! The friendly staff was even able to assist us with setting up massages and horseback riding on the beach. Can't wait to return!

The place to be for sunsets and surf sessions. Form friendly staff and incredible live music and entertainment to posh outdoor seating to watch the sunset and a fun atmosphere for Friday and Saturday surf contests - it's the place to be for a chill vibe and good time in Hermosa.
