Description: Maracatu has been providing Dominical with a one of a kind experience since 2005. We pride ourselves on having found the perfect balance of good vibes, healthy food, great nightlife, a warm ambience, varied world music and environmental responsibility. Every aspect of Maracatu has been created and evolved with a lot of care and intention. As Hippocrates once said "Let Food be Thy Medicine," we are committed to provide as much local, organic, whole food ingredients as possible, often times coming from our organic sister farm, Selva Armonia. Maracatu has also raised the bar on nightlife in the southern zone of Costa Rica. With a unique artistic ambience and a passion for good live music we have helped put Dominical on the map. Come check out Ladies Night on Wednesdays, the most popular night in the zone. Follow us on Facebook to find out about up and coming events at Maracatu!

“Great food, smoking cold beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We were there mid-day on a quiet Saturday in January while on vacation from colder climes. We started with patacones and fried yucca, both with black bean dip. Wonderful. Chased those down with ice cold Imperial. Fabulous. Then we had fish tacos and a fish burger, which is really a slab of white fish on a bun with a great sauce and some lettuce, and a salad. Awesome. Pretty well priced, very tasty, icy beer. Good as it gets.

“Great Food, Hottest Nightspot, and the Envision Festival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love the raw food diet when in this area of Costa Rica (lots of organic greens at markets around here) When it come to the best salad around, it's the Maracatu bowl - simply delicious.
If you like to dance, Maracatu is the place to go at night, with electronica and reggae being the predominant music styles - live bands and djs. This will be my first year at Envision Festival, but I hear it attracts an international crowd due to it's incredibility. Personally, what I'm looking forward to is a painting workshop with Alex Grey.
Don't miss Maracatu if you're in Dominical!

“Perfect and Fresh + a nightlife in evenings w/music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

One of our favorites with how fresh and blended the menu was, really nice and relaxing while enjoying dinner, then after in the evenings comes the fun as well with live music or DJ
