Where to watch the Super Bowl in Costa Rica

February 1, 2018

Will the New England Patriots or the Philadelphia Eagles win? Will candidates Carlos Alvarado, Fabricio Alvarado, Antonio Álvarez, Juan Diego Castro or Rodolfo Piza take the presidency in Costa Rica? There are a couple of major clashes going on this Sunday.

While it will be a busy day around the country as voters head to the polls, NFL fans shouldn’t despair: there are a number of places to tune in to Super Bowl LII. The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles kick off at 5:30 p.m. We’ve compiled a list of prominent sports bars in the country that plan on showing the big game. If you notice we’re missing a venue, email us or leave it in the comments and we’ll update the story.

Winners may be crowned in both events between 9 and 10 p.m. (unless the election goes to a second round, which is likely).

We’ve included links to the Facebook page or website of each sports bar. Many of these locations have their own game day food and drinks special. Fortunately, most of the country is not enforcing the once-traditional Election Day dry law. However, Hooters in Cartago and San Pedro – where the dry law is in effect – have the saddest Super Bowl special: buy 20 wings and get a free pitcher of…soda. Oh.

Remember: Vote first. Then watch football.
