Manuel Antonio/ Quepos Tidings
The new toll highway from San José to the central Pacific coast is finally open. We traveled the whole route a few days before it opened, and it is great. It’s mostly one lane each way, but there isn’t as much climbing as on the old route, and passing lanes open going up hills. The tolls are hefty, but it’s nice to have a new route to go to San José.
An eight-hour course on barismo, teaching techniques of preparing coffee-based drinks and about coffee culture, will be offered Feb. 16 in the Ocean Café, in the lobby of Hotel Divisamar in Manuel Antonio.
The class will be taught by an expert from the CoopedotaBarismoSchool. The cost is ¢30,000 (about $54) per person. To reserve a spot or for information, call 2777-6361 or e-mail email@example.com.
Plaza Yara is home to a new business called Candray, offering physiotherapy and spa services. For more information, call 2777-6178 or 8371-1735.
