Meet a Norwegian jazz pianist, an austrian blues bassist and a Costa Rican flamenco guitarist. Where this may well be? No, at the scene of events it is by no means an international music festival or a crowded concert hall. This takes place in a small hotel in Costa Rica, right on the Pacific coast that for years is the meeting place for professionals and music lovers from all over the world. This is because the owners of the Hotel Paraiso del Cocodrilo, Rainer (here called Rana), is regularly organizing jam sessions, and hence leads together professional musicians and amateur musicians from all over the world.
In every music session invited musicians meet friends, acquaintances, and of course the guests of the hotel, the hotel which are especially invited to enrich the evening with their musical contributions. That possibility is excitedly accepted. The conglomeration of instruments that the hotel manager has accumulated over the years is available for the guests. So a unforeseeable and individual live concert experience evolves in each session where the participants spontaneously make music together, improvise and play solos. This interesting and attractive mix of styles is represented also by the unique hotel ambience with its proximity to the beach of Buena Vista and the beautiful hotel garden. Thus, holiday feeling and enjoying music is perfectly combined at the hotel near Samara and makes the stay especially for guests with fun and joy for music memorable.
Over the years many top musicians were welcomed at the hotel. In particular George Weghofer, former bassist of the successful Mojo Blues Band, Svein Olav Herstad, jazz musician and pianist of the eponymous trio from Norway, and David, a studied flamenco guitarist from Germany are to name. The local music scene is often represented by the resident guitarist Oldrie and also the hotel manager himself does, of course, like to play the guitar and saxophone.
The Paraiso del Cocodrilo is an individual hotel in the sunny province of Guanacaste, near the white sand beaches Buena Vista, Samara and Barrigona. At this beach you can even see Mel Gibson at some days, because he owns a property not far away. Besides the music performances as highlights, the hotel offers also various adventure trips. You can hike through the near national parks, get a boat trip on which you can see dolphins and whales in their natural environment, climb the active volcanoes of Costa Rica or marvel at a drive through the mangroves, where you see crocodiles, monkeys and rare birds. Also there is the opportunity to visit nearby spanish courses to refresh your language or to learn it from qualified teachers.
But also in the hotel itself you can enjoy your holidays completely relaxed. Besides the hotel restaurant with international and Costa Rican dishes, the pool, the surrounding garden and the many wild animals to observe invite one to stay. Offside from busy tourist routes the hotel in Costa Rica presents a natural idyll for individual tourists, in which however you need not dispense with amenities such as WiFi, AC or TV.
