Tamarindo Talk

March 26, 2010

The March 13 beach cleanup was the largest ever, with the staff and some guests of the TamarindoDiriaBeach and Golf Resort joining members of the Tamarindo Surfrider Foundation to help keep the beach clean, serenaded by troubadour Tico Hendrix.

Jerry Smith has left El Tesoro, and the jack-of-all-trades is now available for plumbing, gardening, painting, concrete, stone and block work, as well as minor electrical repairs. Contact him at 8834-3535, 2653-0430 or tamarindobeach@gmail.com.

For a light, enjoyable read, check out The Pothole, Tamarindo’s new magazine published by FT Restaurant owner Mike Gerhard and entrepreneur, DJ and Surfrider Foundation head Lock Cooper. The second edition includes titillating features such as a late-night interview with Chef Steve, “Party of the Month” and “Dispatches from the Sea.”

A new salon called La Diva has opened a few doors down from Banco Nacional. Also, RE/MAX has opened a new office just north of Banco Nacional, making two branches in Tamarindo.
