Witch’s Rock Industries currently owns and operates Witch’s Rock Surf Camp, Volcano Brewing Company, and the El Vaquero Beach Bar and Restaurant. The founder of Witch’s Rock Industries, Joe Walsh states, “I’m excited about the purchase of the Pueblo Dorado Hotel.

It will be a great compliment to our organization and will keep with our mission to offer a great quality of family-friendly, clean, and affordable rooms. Our brand of hospitality always includes service with a smile and the Pueblo Dorado will adopt this tradition of warmth and care”.

Joe Walsh began Witch’s Rock Industries 15 years ago after driving a school bus to Tamarindo from California, renting a shack on the beach, and opening Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.

“Tamarindo was a much different place back then, a lot smaller, but regardless of the town’s growth we have always been 100% committed to Tamarindo and our core values of giving back to the community will always remain the same” Walsh said.

“The addition of Hotel Pueblo Dorado will offer critically needed additional jobs for the community. Currently we employ over 80 employees, with the new hotel this number will significantly increase”  Walsh stated.
