Half a day out and nobody jumped on this? With apologies to the OP.

Poke'er can be played at HDR, SL, Amistad and many other places if you choose the venue wisely. Games are always cash, but you might be able to play for barter if your ante is rico. Enjoy!

The Taormina Hotel and Casino has cash games starting in their Poker Room at around 2 p.m. everyday of the week. The room is located near the hotel lobby and was just completed about 6 months so everything is brand new in there.

Taormina (formerly Mona Lisa, formerly Clarion) has cash games daily. I played in January. It's a colones game, ¢500/1000 blinds. Mostly local Ticos with deep pockets playing. Crazy game with people betting all over the place, chasing inside straights, backdoor flushes, etc.

It's a phucking free-for-all. Luck plays more than it should on the outcome.

I think that Del Rey has a cash game too, $1/2 blinds.

Poker in the gultch seems to be dead..... I was not able to find a game. HDR poker room is done and so Taormina. Radisson hotel had a brief attempt at returning but that seems to be done as well.

Am I missing a spot?

When I was there in February there was a multi-day tournament at Taormina. I did not see anything in April. But, I was told there was a good game at the Grand Casino Escazu at the Sheraton Hotel. I did not go there, so I cannot vouch as to the accuracy of the information.

Any idea if games running in San Jose or Jaco? I played Sheraton, Taormina and Horseshoe along with the 2/5 in Jaco last time. Appreciate any direction, I'm vaccinated and ready to play again.

Answer my own question
-daily game at the Sheraton 1/2 NL. Tables gone from Taromina, possible they have private games but no one i talked to thought that was a good idea. Masks required and plastic dividers with big TVs to see flop from end of 25 foot table. $5 timed rake per half hour. 6-max.
-daily games in Jaco. Crew moved from Cocal's Casino to Hotel Amapola not far away. They are up in a dark stairway but game is in nice room with friendly mix of ticos and gringos. Pork chop dinner is tasty. Masks optional. Employees and half table masked up. Think it was 9 ring but could have been 10. Rake was $6 max per pot. Not bad. Female employees hot.
