In 2009, by a rustic hotel in the small beach town of Playa Brasilito in Guanacaste Costa Rica, I found the coolest chemistry bar in the world. This very colourful place decorated with retort stands, reaction flasks, test tubes and other types of lab glassware was named Outback Jacks. Sadly, it doesn't exist anymore since the owners retired in 2015.
Still, I wanted to show it to you because it really made an impression and you don't typically see something like this everyday. It was truly Pura Vida.
