The New El Vaquero Beachfront Brewpub in Tamarindo



Over the past few months, the El Vaquero bar (Witch’s Rock’s local watering hole) has undergone some mega transformations to the menu, setting, and event schedule alike.

The new El Vaquero Beachfront Brewpub now has it’s own menu featuring cuisine such as pulled pork sandwiches, savory jalapeño poppers, cowboy steaks, BBQ ribs, and gourmet burgers to name a few. Don’t worry, our famous nachos will still be available upon request.

We have recently added extensive open-air seating with scenic views, making El Vaquero the perfect destination for groups of all sizes. With the addition of our new 6-tap kegerator, guests can enjoy plenty of our craft beers from Volcano Brewing Company located right next door!

The newly remodeled El Vaquero Beachfront Brewpub might just be the best place to relax in Playa Tamarindo. So take out the family or friends, have an ice-cold micro beer, and enjoy an amazing meal in our beach front restaurant. Check out the El Vaquero schedule below and join us in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica!
