People have been getting quite a surprise when driving down the coast in southern Costa Rica. There among the toucans, sloths and macaws is another rare bird in this area, a cosmic bowling alley. The Costa Ballena region has been amazing people with its bio diversity for years. But recently some new inhabitants have appeared, causing a migration of a different sort.

Twice in the past month belly dancers have performed in the village of Ojochal to an international audience of both expats and locals. The venue is an amazing restaurant that one would not expect to find in this small village, a classy place called Citrus Restaurant. Estelle Zaghloul is the lead dancer in the group and I believe was a national champion belly dancer in Lebanon. There were three dancers in all and their repoirtore included fan dances, traditional belly dances and some tribal dances. The show lasted nearly 2 hours with great rhythmic music, fire dancing and hard to imagine movements. The dancers captivated the audience with their hypnotic motions. With every seat full, every door and window also had standing room only crowds crooning their necks to see the performance. The audience for the show reside mostly in the developments by Pacific Lots of Costa Rica located along the Costa Ballena area in the southern Pacific region of Costa Rica. This area is one of the most pristine locations in Costa Rica and has been recently made more accessible with the completion of the Costanera highway extension connecting Quepos and Manuel Antionio to Dominical and points further south.
