“Fun Fun Fun”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

One of the best bars in town! Always a good time and drinks are relatively cheap.

“Go when there's live music”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

I went to the Black Whale a couple of times - the first time there was a blues band, the second time a FANTASTIC reggae band. As well as live music a few times a week, there are also pool tables and table football.
The drinks are average price and the atmosphere is maybe a little better than in some of the other very touristy bars in the area. One of the only bars I went to where you'll see tourists AND a fair number of locals

“Good night time crowd”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

During the day there is nothing going on here... some friends of ours went and when we asked how it was they said "Ummm... cheap?" However, we all decided to return one night because they were promoting a "reggae night" with live music. The band was pretty good and the bar was PACKED to the brim. The drinks were super cheap - like 6 bucks for a round of beers and two cocktails. Fast bartenders - even with a line three deep you could get a drink within a minute. It was a fun night. I would probably go back if something was going on there.

“Cheapest beer on the beach”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

I didn't eat here, but the menu looks great. We enjoyed the C$15 Brahvas. You can't get a cheaper beer in San Juan Del Sur. They also have live music on the weekends
