KOKI BEACH featured in Lonely Planet Magazine Dec issue




So we got several mention and was recommended as in Lonely Planet Mag this month. Here is an excerpt from the article ;

Copas con tragos multicolores se vacían y se vuelven a llenar en la terraza de Koki Beach. La noche con luna creciente apenas ilumina el tranquilo mar Caribe. Cuesta imaginar esa ola perfecta con el mar tan planchado. Los Cafres suenan alto: “Quiero despertar tranquilo en un lugar, quiero despertar tranquilo y disfrutar. Lejos del circo quiero estar...”. En la mesa de al lado dos chicas negras se ponen de pie y bailan el reggae como si estuvieran solas. En la barra, un surfer rasta lamenta la escasez de olas y su amigo lo consuela: “Vea, mae -la forma de llamarse unos a otros en Costa Rica-, deje de quejarse, el Todopoderoso sabe, ¿oye? Si el mar está flat (chato), pues a bucear, mae, a sacar langosta, no sea necio”. Jorge, uno de los dueños del lugar, se vuelve hacia mí, que me estoy yendo, y, mientras me despide, me repite con picardía: “Y oiga, no se olvide de que el Caribe está de moda.”

    KOKi Beach celebrating One Year Anniversary with Art Exhibition





    KOKi Beach is kicking of Anniversary party with Art Exhibit by renowned Costa Rican artist Adrian Gomez 6 PM Saturday Oct 2.




    Adrian Gomez en su parlabras

    Mi encuentro con el Caribe inició hace tanto como lo que tengo de memoria... claro, ¡esto sin saber
    que sería atrapado por su belleza! Hoy a la vuelta de tantos años la alegría de reencontrarme junto a él y
    mi lectura de lo que he sentido es para mi como artista ... su sensación y color Caribe... se da con una alegría
    enorme en este momento y junto a ello el honor de poder compartir con todos este conjunto de piezas, síntesis
    de un proceso de más de 15 años, asi que no siendo de otra forma esto, hoy luego de todo este recorrido llego
    con mi obra, junto a parte del entorno que le dio vida y sentido a mi labor de artista, mi amor por el Caribe...

    Además a ello se suma el honor de tenerlos en este espacio tan especial de KOKI BEACH y muy especialmente
    para que la misma sea parte de la celebración de su primer aniversario, mi agradecimiento por el espacio y
    celebremos la belleza de nuestro Caribe...

    Adrián Gómez
    Octubre 2 , 2010

    Adrián Gómez. (Costa Rica, 1962).
    Artista visual proveniente de la generación de finales de 1980, su formación de carácter autodidacta a partir de
    1978. Ha participado a la fecha en más de 47 muestras colectivas y realizado 34 exposiciones individuales. La obra
    de Gómez está apoyada dentro de una línea figurativa nutriéndose esta de la cultura Afro-Caribeña, con la cual
    logra darle continuidad a una constante presente en su obra, como lo son el movimiento, el mundo lúdico de la niñez,
    la paz y los espacios de serenidad; todas ellas sensaciones con los cuales elabora su lenguaje y de esta forma logra
    transmitir un acercamiento de cómo ...respira la vida el Caribe…

    Puerto Viejo travel in the New York Times


    The laid-back, untamed vibe of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast attracts surfing disciples and soul-searching world travelers.SOME vacation destinations attract tourists. Others attract disciples. The surfer town of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and the tiny beach communities southeast of it, on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, are of the latter variety. This wild, often overlooked coastal stretch, an 11-mile-long necklace of small sandy coves located in southern Limón province, may be in one of Costa Rica’s poorest areas, but it’s also one of the most diverse, populated by a blend of Costa Ricans, English-speaking Afro-Caribbeans, indigenous Cabecar and Bribri Indians, and plenty of expatriates, from French fashion designers to old German hippies.

    Comparsa @ KOKi Beach

    A comparsa (conga de comparsa) is the band which plays a conga during a Latin American Carnival celebration. It consists of a large group of dancers wearing costumes dancing to a group of musicians playing percussions, drums (bongos), frying pans, tambores, cowbells and other instruments. It often travels on the streets, followed by a Carrosa (carriage) where the musicians play. The Comparsa is a development of African processions where groups of devotees followed a given saint or deity during a particular religious celebration. Some of the comparsas have a long history, with costumes and traditions passed down from one generation to the next
