2. Playa Hermosa and Jaco Beach

The city's neighborhood that’s just 15-20 minutes away is where lies the night gem of Costa Rica!

There is an array of bars, nightclubs and restaurants will keep open until 5 in the morning. You can start out in Monkey bar which is known for its music and top-notch DJ. And if you want to go and have an all-out party and dance all night long there is an alfresco dancing spot too. Right across the street is La Bruja, a more of a gothic style Bar with a really cool ambiance. Banging music and hard drinks make this one among the top spots for night crawlers. Moving further to the south, you find a place called Loft, boasting a good house DJ and a higher end ambiance. Also, at last, there is a very renowned beach located within a walking distance of Hermosa Beach House. The backyard bar is another beach style bar and a haven for night crawlers.

3. La California

Nightlife in San Jose cannot be described without including the La California district! The city may be a small one but doesn't fall short on serving a banging nightlife. The list of bars starts with El Lobo Estepario, a rock bar with a lit, black atmosphere. Both the drinks and food menu are pretty affordable in here. In the two floor seating, you can easily find a spot to chill and relax. Another nightspot in this district is the El Acapulco. Alternatively, for a bit more fancy nightlife, you can head to Mercadito. All in all, this is the coolest new nightspot, so artistically designed with light blue iron-gate walls, artistic wood burned signs and gin tonics, that this place is more like a cluster of live food station and bohemian vibes!

In San Jose, it's not just about clubs and bars, which anyway the city has in hundreds, but also the theatres and performances that keep night crawlers up till late!
