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!

This is about the only really good food in Dominical. While you can get very nice casadas all over town, this is the only place that serves well cooked food with some variability in the menu. The restaurant calls itself vegan, but serves fish. The fish dishes are excellent! The vegetables are mostly home-grown. There's a friendly, low key vibe and there's often live music. Portions sizes are good and prices lower than many other options in town.

This is my favorite restaurant in Costa Rica BY FAR for vegetarian, dairy-free food. The portions are generous. The yuka chips are AMAZING, the guacamole is great, the falafel sandwich is outstanding. They bake their own pita breads with whole wheat, they use brown rice instead of white, and everything tastes great without being overly fatty or salty. It's obvious that the person who designed the menu cared for making great healthy foods that tastes great. There's also quite a lot of nightly events I didn't check out. On the menu almost everything is vegetarian and dairy-free, but they have a page of fish dishes. They include vegetables from their own gardens in the menu, and everything we tried was fresh and delicious. This is by far the healthiest option in all of Southern Costa Rica .
