We love the annual party at Lizard Lounge, the self-professed “best Halloween party in Tamarindo.” They’re celebrating all week – lots of themed décor, creepy food and drink, and other details – but Wednesday is the big day, with prizes, music (courtesy of DJ FireB), and open bar. May the best costume win!

We can’t refuse a good pun! And, of course, we also love that this is one Halloween party that does a body good: All day, Mermaids & Sailors yoga classes will crown one winner per class, plus an overall grand prize winner. (Of course, they’re also serving candy and treats! So… maybe it balances out?!) They’re also collecting donations for recent flood victims in Guanacaste.

If you’re visiting with kids, then head to Nordico Coffee House for some Halloween trick-or-treating. Take a photo in the scary kids’ corner and your little one will get a handful of candy.
