It’s not necessary to be in the United States, or to travel to San Jose, to have a “bloody” Halloween. The bars and restaurants of Nosara and Samara are preparing to celebrate the night of witches and in the process liven up the low season a little. VON checked around to see where the parties will be, and we discovered that you can dance a double-header.
On Saturday, the 29th, the Tropicana in Nosara will open its doors exclusively to celebrate Halloween. They have been closed during September and October, and the reopening is scheduled for mid-November. Entrance is free for everyone that comes dressed up, there will be prizes for the best costumes, and a gloomy decoration-show on the dance floor, where the phantoms will be visiting the dancers that night.
In turn, the Saturday party in Samara will be at Tabanuco Bar; they’ll have raffles, prizes for the three best costumes and drink specials.
But don’t put away your Dracula fangs yet since the party will continue on Monday, the 31st, honoring Halloween night. In Nosara, everything starts at the Gilded Iguana at 8 p.m. with prizes for the five best costumes of the night, free hair-raising shots and raffles for everyone present. There will be a frightening mural and a cemetery among the tables in the garden. Pay attention… a zombie might bite you.
For those who need more, the dance will continue in the Banana Bar with free shots for those dressed up. The Banana will be showing off new decorations and sound system too.
For Samara residents, the party Monday is at the Vela Latina. DJ Samurio and DJ Kevin (techno House) will mix it up starting at 8 p.m. The two most creative costumes will be rewarded, and there will be free shots during the night. Admission is free.
