tata duende lives

folklore by the fire

Every October, step into a world where mystery, fable, and the whispers of the past come to life under the moonlit sky.

We invite you to join us every October for Folklore by the Fire at The Lodge at Jaguar Reef. Join us for an evening cozied up next to the bonfire as storytellers share traditional tales of the past about the bewildering Tata Duende. As the eerie whispers of our storytellers ride the wind and the fire pit beckons, brace yourself to step into a world where the supernatural collides with reality. Nestled in the cozy embrace of your blankets, you’ll be tempted to steal a glance into the darkness but beware – for it’s in the shadows that the very characters from our tales, including the enigmatic Tata Duende, may lurk.
