There have been other food-related changes in Tamarindo. FalafelMundo, next to Costa Rica Surf Club, adds an interesting twist to both its falafel and chicken shawarma: French fries inside the pita. The popular Mandarina Juice Bar moved out of GardenPlaza into Plaza Esmeralda commercial center, and, in a joint venture, Nicolás Velásquez’s Pipo Dog is now next door, offering a wide variety of hot dogs. Nicolás has also opened a Pipo Dog in GardenPlaza, right next to Auto Mercado. Finally, Huacas has a new bakery and dessert place called Panes, open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Plaza Huacas commercial center, in front of the bus stop at the Huacas intersection.
Cala Luna hotel has opened Shankha Spa, which offers massages and beauty treatments with an Asian flavor. Treatments include deep-tissue, sports, Reiki, Thai and Tibetan bowls massages, a variety of body and hair treatments, and feet exfoliation using sand, sea salt, coconut, coffee and strawberries.
