Tamarindo Talk

May 14, 2010

Recycling has really taken off in Tamarindo. New recycling cans are available next to La Botella de Leche, across from the gym and across from Licorera Cristal, in addition to the old spots at Surf Club Langosta, Langosta beach access, behind Cala Luna, the bus stop near Mono Loco across from Aqua, and the soccer field in front of Witch’s Rock Surf Camp. Plastic, aluminum and glass cans are accepted. Remember to put your items in plastic bags. For more information, e-mail tamarindorecycles@gmail.com.

Surfclub Sports Bar in Langosta now has nine-ball pool tournaments Sundays beginning at 7 p.m. For more information, call 2653-1886.

Gil’s Place has opened its new restaurant in the space under the Tamarindo Gym. The air-conditioned place will now be open not only for breakfast and lunch, but also for dinner. Gil tells us we can count on the same delicious breakfast and lunch burritos, with some new dinner specials.

A couple of changes have been noted around town: La Barra is now under new ownership and is called La Luna, and Xplore Costa Rica Tours has an office in Plaza Esmeralda where Subway is located.

Kelly’s Surf Shop now has a bike rental store and a tour business, while Nari Cafeteria at Shops at Diria has started Pasta Nights with special deals for under $10.

The nonprofit CEPIA celebrated its fifth anniversary of helping kids in need with a new health network. The group secured the donated services of Dr. Walbin Sánchez, a gynecologist from the San Rafael Arcángel private clinic in Liberia. Already helping with the kids is Tamarindo dentist Tatiana Ortiz, Optical Vision in Tamarindo and the doctors from Emergency 2000.
