Coco Capsule

November 18, 2010

With less than two months left in the year, residents and merchants of Playas del Coco are gearing up for the holidays. It seems as if every store already has decorations in place, and Artflower in Pacifico Center has a new and extensive selection of quality decorations.

With Hanukkah nearing, it’s appropriate to welcome Rabbi Yaakov Nerenberg and his wife, Sherry. Having recently relocated from Florida, the Nerenbergs have rapidly become a well-known addition to the Coco community, participating in a number of civic activities that benefit all. But more importantly, Rabbi Yaakov and Sherry intend to serve the entire Jewish community of northern Guanacaste through Shabbat dinners, performing weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs, and assisting with children’s educations. Their eventual hope is to establish a temple here, but in the meantime they are serving the individual and group needs of those in Playas del Coco, Tamarindo, Flamingo, Surfside and surrounding areas. They can be reached at 8718-3263 or at  forrabbi@aol.com.

Gary Lindquist, Jairo Cascante and a group of volunteers are planning a Christmas party Dec. 16 for the children of the Sardinal elementary school. They need donations and assistance. For more information, contact Gary at 2672-0023 or Jairo at 8998-8716.

And with all of the running around preparing for guests and the holidays, residents and tourists alike will appreciate a quick bite at Coco Dog, the newly opened hot dog stand in Plaza Central, next to Amnet. Offering a menu of hot dogs served in a variety of sizes and ways, Coco Dog has indoor and outdoor seating.
