Just 15 minutes from DoceLunas hotel in Jaco, or half hour by bicycle, you will find the Tulin Wildlife refuge. November through January, sea turtle egg clutches hatch and volunteers and sometimes lucky bystanders pluck them from the wriggling mass in the bucket and line them up for the race to the sea. Check out this video of the adorable baby turtles!

Alpha Blondy came and played for us at DoceLunas last May. The band had a little difficuly with their other Costa Rica shows and were glad to be relaxing in the tranquil gardens of DoceLunas. Here you can see the white tent for the soundboard above the pool chairs but the huge international stage and lighting rack is almost completely hidden by the fire tree, just a little spot of blue showing through.

Lit up at night by all the smiling faces of the fans, there's no other venue that can offer the ambience of DoceLunas spectacular central garden. We are looking foward to putting on some great shows in the dry season coming up.

First Post

Welcome to DoceLunas new blog. We hope you enjoy this source of information for events in the Jaco area.

DoceLunas is looking forward to hosting Midnite Spaghetti for Halloween this year. So far we havent signed a contract, so its not a done deal just yet, but we are planning to present these eight completely smokin funk jam masters who have been known to throw down 12 hour sets. They played for us last halloween and the crowd had a great time dancing with these extreme costumed funsters and their party style performance.

More information on area happenings will be coming soon.

As will lots and lots of baby turtles. Thousands of baby turtles.

Know of a good event coming up? Please post a comment!
