Manuel Antonio Quepos Vacation Activities
Spanish Language School & TEFL
of my guests have combined their holiday vacation with taking a class to
learn or improve their Spanish. I’ve listed the Spanish Language schools in
Manuel Antonio. To make it easier to locate their proximity to Las
Palmas, their respected numbers are identified on the Map Page:
D’Amore Spanish Language School
has recently moved beside (23). About 200 yards from My
Spanish Language School (16)
SiSe Spanish Language School (26)
located on the cross road in front Cafe Milagro (7)
Tefl English Teaching Course located away from the tourist section past the New Banco Popular (not shown on the Quepos Map)
For the small
size of Manuel Antonio, there are some exceptional quality entertainers.
These artists will have you tapping your feet, clapping, singing and
swaying. They probably all came for a short vacation and decided this is
the place to stay. Here are some of the artists I have enjoyed listening to and
wouldn’t feel my trip was complete without going and listening again.
plays the harmonica wonderfully and produced 4 CDs. Lance has played
with some of the great artists. Have a listen to:
Pura Vida Social Club has been playing Saturdays afternoon at Dos Locos. The members are Lance on harmonica, Letty on bass and Jim on rhythm guitar. They take turns singing and often have guest musicians joining them. When we were there Mike was on bongos and Dave on flute and percussion. They played blue grass, country and classic rock & roll. It was a fun afternoon - I've never seen Dos Locus so busy on a Saturday afternoon.
Lance, Letty & Jim at Dos Locos - Saturday Afternoon
Fuzzy Rojas has a fantastic Jazz voice. Fuzzy sings some of the standards. She has composed songs and in 2007 made her first CD. One of my favorites of Fuzzy’s jazz songs is Cyndi Lauper’s, Time After Time. David a guest performer who plays the flute is often invited to sit in for a few songs. His table was beside ours and when I told him I enjoyed his playing, one of the things he said was "If Fuzzy was playing in Las Vegas she'd be sold out every night."
Fuzzy & Leo - September 2007
plays the electric guitar and sings the 60’s protest songs and the 70’s
rock ‘n’ roll. He writes some of his own Lyrics. You can catch him
Wednesdays at Dos Locos and Saturday at one of the Manuel Antonio beach
Bars or in Jaco Beach. BenJamin has a great web page with samples of his music. He
has compiled a CD. Please have a look at his website.

Club Banana - My guests went on a week-end and said - We went to Club Banana for karaoke (what a riot!) Best Tico Atmosphere - in the Zona Americana, East of the Marina.
If you like their music, you may want to purchase their CD's from the Local Artists. They also make great gifts.
