Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

February 12, 2010

Happy Valentine’s Day! A very cool event is planned for the morning of Feb. 14 if you want to get this special day off to a great start. Alida Francisco will lead a walk from 7 to 9 a.m. to reconnect with nature and honor the animals that co-create harmony with the Earth. She will teach the principles of the four cardinal directions and tools to honor nature and animals, and show the power and healing of walking with the Earth. The walk will be held on the Plinio’s trail, where the rain forest is beautiful and poison dart frogs abound. The price of the walk is $10 prepaid or $15 for walk-ins. Alida also offers stone massage, energy healing and animal medicine reading. To set up an appointment or to sign up for the walk, contact her at 8848-5666 or alida@healingme.com, or visit www.healing-me.com.

If you need flowers for that special someone, you can get them from Maday and Jorge at Floristería Quepos, 150 meters from the corner of the church, on the way to Manuel Antonio. To place your order, call 2777-1721. For Valentine’s dinner, La Hacienda Restaurant is offering a special dinner for two with a seafood platter, including lobster, and chocolate fondue for dessert.

For reservations, call 2777-3473. There is a “G Dance” every Sunday from 4 to 8 p.m. at Barba Roja. It is discreet, outdoors and totally gay (their words, not ours!).
