Our family of 4 (including two teens) stayed at Pura Vida during the green season and we all agreed that it was the single best vacation we've ever taken as a family. What we loved about this villa: The location (Dominical isn't touristy at all...yet the restaurants and attractions were top-rate.) The pool (and having it partly covered meant that we could swim even at mid-day). The wildlife (we saw more monkeys and toucans in our yard than we did on our tour of the national parks :) The price (we looked at many choices and I'm convinced this is the best-value villa on the southern pacific coast.) Couple this with the smart & considerate British owner (who's available to help but also allows his guests complete privacy) and we are ready to return.

Costa Ballena craft beer festival


Costa Ballena beer festival

Mmm, beer.

Suds lovers are starting to get pumped for the second annual Costa Ballena Craft Beer Festival, scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 17 at Goathouse 169 near Uvita from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Goathouse 169, a popular restaurant, shopping and billiards center, is located on the Pan-American Highway at KM169 south of Uvita. The establishment is a 30-minute drive from many of our Dominical vacation villas.

The annual festival celebrates commercial and noncommercial Costa Rican draft beers, with an emphasis on education. Regional brewers expected to participate include La Bodega de Chema, Calle Cimarrona, Treintaycinco, La Troja, La Familia, Fercas Brew House and many others.

Presale tickets cost $20 online with a $1.49 transaction fee and can be purchased here. Each ticket includes entry to the event, on-site parking, a beer pamphlet with brewing information, prize opportunities from local sponsors, five tasting tickets for 5-ounce pours and a commemorative pint glass. Additional tasting tickets will be sold during the festival, and general admission tickets can also be purchased at the door. Furthermore, designated drivers can enter the festival for free, provided they don’t partake in any beer tasting.

Food will be sold throughout the day, and plenty of non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase, too. There will be live music, vendors, entertainment and games going on as well. The IPAs, Hefeweizens, Porters and Stouts will be the stars – no doubt about that – but there will be plenty of other fun stuff going on to keep the crowd rocking from start to finish.

Brewers will be located at an outside garden, so if attendees want to bring their dog it’s okay as long as the dog is well-behaved and on a leash. And although it’s an 18-and-older event, parents are welcome to bring their children. If the kids get bored, there’s a nice beach a kilometer away.

The festival also stresses the importance of utilizing a designated driver or taxi cab if you and your group decide to drink. There will be plenty of taxi options available on site near the end of the afternoon. Please make sure to play it safe.

So if you love tasty beer, groovy music, fresh food and fun people, make a plan to come down to southern Costa Rica and attend the Costa Ballena Craft Beer Festival in mid-January. Because, honestly, what could possibly taste better than an ice-cold draft brew on a warm Costa Rican summer day? In our humble opinion, not much.
