Jacó Happenings

January 15, 2010

It’s time again for the annual Jacó Arts Festival to be held in the town’s Central Park. The Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce and the Garabito Municipality Culture Commission are planning the weeklong arts extravaganza at the end of the month.

This activity is of great importance for the growth of our canton, providing a cultural and artistic space to be used by the entire family. Sponsorship options are available in the form of promotion and sales stands or brand presence. All sponsorships will be administered by the chamber of commerce.

If you would like to be a sponsor, call the chamber at 2643-2853.

The Central Pacific Women’s Group will hold its first meeting of the new year Jan. 21 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Balcón del Mar in Jacó. Roberto Hernández, an experienced National Insurance Institute (INS) agent, will present information about the different products INS offers and how to receive maximum benefits from them. The meeting will be followed by a potluck lunch, so bring a dish to share, as well as a book or magazine to exchange. It’s a great way to get some new materials into your library. For more information, contact Norma Kahn at kahnnk@gmail.com.

If you’re thinking about those holiday pounds and new-year resolutions, a special promotion boot camp will be held out at Pamela’s Serenity Spa in Pueblo Nuevo Jan. 23 from 8 to 10:30 a.m. The cost is ¢5,000 ($9). For more information, contact Speedy or Monica at 8373-9635.

The second leg of the National Surf Circuit is being held this weekend in Palo Seco, about 30 minutes south of Jacó. Check out the country’s top surfers in action.
