Nativo Sports Bar

Nativo Sports Bar

Destination: Santa Teresa, Mal Pais

The chalkboard out front says, "Drink till he's cute," but the food inside speaks for itself. Fresh fish tacos, juicy beef hamburgers and towering plates of nachos — flavorful all on their own at Nativo Sports Bar — not just after a few drinks.

Especially when sports are on one of the five plasma screen TVs, margaritas, $6, sell more than just about anything else — they taste so good with the Mal Pais fish tacos, $10-$12 based on market price, corn tortillas, cabbage and roasted green salsa.

Fruit smoothies and juices, blended coffee drinks, and a full list of cocktails, beers and draft beers — Nativo Sports Bar seriously has everything under the drinking sun - which is available on the back patio, front porch and just about everywhere in between.

When people come in and ask for a healthier drink - apparently that's a thing in Santa Teresa sports bars - bartenders suggest the Green One smoothie, $4, pineapple, mint, celery, ginger, chia seeds and orange juice.

And since the drinks save calories, there's always room for a bacon avocado cheeseburger, $13, half pound of local beef, cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles on a toasted bun, served with french fries and homemade chipotle aioli dipping sauce.


Step under the 20-foot high ceiling, still sandy from the beach; they'll still serve you a drink. Down that drink, order another, and by that time — it's likely you've made three new friends and unconvinced the bartender you're normal.


Costa Rican owners equals Costa Rican hospitality: calm and composed, efficient and friendly, and totally ready to get you whatever food and drinks your party heart desires.


Appetizers $5-$10; Entrees $9-$13; Drinks $3-$9
