In Playa Ocotal, Guanacaste, the Hotel Villa Casa Blanca will host art-lovers for an exhibition by Spanish artist Sara Florez-Rodriguez; view her depictions of flora and fauna, “Ciclos Naturales,” and sample tapas and drinks (Saturday, April 2).

Back in San José, the National Theater kicks off a new series, “Aperitivo musical,” in which guests will enjoy a welcome cocktail, finger food, and a chance to tap their feet or dance up a storm just a few feet from the musicians during concerts in the theater’s lobby. This week, catch saxophone-percussion group Sonsax (Saturday, April 2).

The Cine Magaly’s French Film Festival fills the screen with works that examine African emigration to Europe (“HOPE,” Friday, April 1), Haiti’s revolutionary hero (“Toussaint Louverture,” Saturday, April 2), a beloved comic strip (“Titeuf,” Sunday, April 3) and French film itself (“Maestro,” Monday, April 4).
