Sportsmen’s Lodge Costa Rica

by Terry Bender

The Sportsmen’s Lodge in Costa Rica is a hotel like none other.  On assignment to vacation in the land of “pura vida,” I stumbled into this establishment without knowing much about it.  Well, turns out I stumbled into a pretty good joint by my accounts.  The Sportsmens Lodge is a place where people go to hang out, relax, and enjoy themselves in a setting with plenty of sports on television, as well as be in the company of entrepreneurial women from all across Latin America.

The Sportsmen’s crowd consists of mainly expatriates that either live in the Central Valley of Costa Rica or who are on vacation.  Most importantly, the beer is cold, the atmosphere is laid back, and they have the country’s only Golden Tee Golf video game.  Here is a highlight I personally witnessed at the bar last night.
