With its prime location on the corner of Plaza de Santa Ana and its façade of bamboo shutters and dried grass awnings, it’s hard to miss Mauna Loa, the only place in town that offers a truly Hawaiian experience and fabulous tropical drinks.

Although patrons are greeted in the bar by the sounds of exotic birds and an elaborate décor of lush plants and colorful lighting, the real attraction is downstairs, where a multilevel series of labyrinthine stairs and cave-like rooms leads visitors into what appears to be the belly of a volcano – or, rather, a Mountain of Fire, as the name of the bar suggests.

Dark and exotic, the underground bar is perfect for a date, but there are always plenty of larger, fun-loving groups hanging out and mingling in the various little nooks.

The cool nighttime Pacific atmosphere creates a true island vibe that keeps the international clientele upbeat and cheery all night long – and the Fuerte Volcanoes don’t hurt, either. Made for two to eight people, the famous drink is served in a smoking volcano and meant to be communally sipped through long straws.

And to add to the already jovial, welcoming atmosphere, the wait staff at Mauna Loa piles every table with free olives, ham, peanuts, and tapas, and gives all the ladies flowers, cocktail umbrellas, and leis.

Be sure to bring a camera – the cool island décor and all the female patrons with their complimentary flowers and leis make for great photos.

Mauna Loa User Reviews

OK Hawaiian themed bar
Jody P. Dec 11, 2012
Although I typically like a kitschy themed bar, Mauna Loa didn't really do it for me. I cant put my finger on it exactly, but there was something about Mauna Loa that I didnt love. I guess the whole package was a little TOO overdone and touristy for me. At Mauna Loa, they do stick faithfully to their theme from decor to menu. The servers are all decked out in hawaiian garb and they do have some interesting hawaiian themed cocktails, but this place just doesnt do it for me. If you end up there, you will probably have a decent time, but dont go out of your way to go here.
