Manuel Antonio/ Quepos Tidings

April 9, 2010

We are sad to report that local doctor Carlos Zúñiga has passed away. Many of us knew him, and he was a doctor to many foreigners. Our sympathies go out to his family. He will be missed.

The Quepos Immigration office has opened its doors again and is now 25 meters west of the Civil Registry. The office can help Costa Ricans with passports and also coordinate resident cédula renewal through Banco de Costa Rica. The number is 2777-0150.
