Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca

May 1, 2009

The next Puerto Viejo Open Pro Surf Tournament will take place May 9 at Playa Cocles, with open, grommet and longboard categories. There will be music following the contest. For more information, contact Beto at 8885-9688 or betolocks@hotmail.com.

Chair massage is being offered at the feria Saturday mornings from 7 to 10 a.m. Kevin Reilly, a 10-year licensed massage therapist who has lived in Costa Rica for six years, gives 10-minute upper-body massages for $5. Kevin is also available for full-body table massages at your place or his; e-mail him at kevcosta07@gmail.com.

I had craniosacral therapy treatment by Dan at the BlissMassageCenter. All I can say is “wow.” If you have any kind of chronic problem, this might help you. Dan is a busy guy, as many in the community benefit from his therapy, so call 2756-8224 in advance for an appointment. For information about the center’s treatments, visit www.blisscostarica.com.

Loco Natural will be closed the first three weeks of May and will reopen May 22.
