Brad's Split Coconut has been going strong for over 12 years in Puerto Escondido, and its latest location under a set of shady palm trees on Marinero Beach is its best. Grab a plastic chair, dig your toes into the sand, and dive into a rib dinner, burger, or fish from his "bone suckin' good' barbecue.
Despite experiencing a serious accident during Hurricane Carlotta in 2012, owner Brad Lopez Benning, who hails from Atlanta via Mexico City, returned with a new lease on life and inspiration for "The Split." Located directly on the beach, this bar is a fun place to hang out, listen to the waves, watch a sports game on the big screen TV, or play a game of horseshoes.
The Split Coconut also hosts the annual Puerto Music Fest.
