Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

July 16, 2010

We now have a great water purification center downtown called Fríos del Pacífico. Many readers may know Fafer, who used to own the car repair shop next to Dr. Martinez’s vet store and office. He now has opened a great high-tech water purification store. If you bring your own 5-gallon container, you can buy the water for ¢1,800 ($3.40), right out of a huge, sterile water purifier. Fafer also offers purified ice cubes for ¢400 ($0.75) for a 3-kilogram bag, or ¢1,300 ($2.45) for a 10-kg bag. Fríos del Pacífico is 50 meters west of Escuela de Corea in Quepos. For more information, call 2777-1164 or e-mail fafer@hotmail.es.

The Quepos Public Library will be forced to close its doors in three months if it doesn’t get some donations. If anyone would like to help, please get in touch with Liliana Mora at 2777-2048, 8890-7746 or 2777-0542.
