Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
If you are looking for a traditional Christmas dinner or a New Year’s Eve extravaganza, El Gran Escape restaurant in Quepos, by the sea wall, will have both. For more information, call 2777-0395.
Hats off to Davis Henley, owner of Manuel Antonio’s Hotel Byblos, who recently completed a ride on his BMW R1200GS motorcycle from Austin, Texas, to Manuel Antonio. The ride through Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica took 16 days. He has many tales to share about his exciting adventure. The No. 1 question being asked is: “Did you have any difficulties?” In reply, he just laughs. Davis says the ride was scary, fun, exciting, challenging and an experience of a lifetime. He is contemplating a return trip in February.
Manuel Antonio has a new bakery, Café Jacque, a great addition to our area. Owners Clay Cason and Jacqueline Quesada offer tasty treats in a clean, quaint, neighborhood setting on the main road to the beach, across from the Manuel Antonio soccer field. It’s open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. For information, call 2777-0855.
Adrienne Pellizzari of El Patio Bistro Latino says the restaurant will be moving its delicious menu to Café Milagro in Manuel Antonio. The old location in Quepos will now be known as Café Milagro Coffee House, serving breakfast, lunch and fresh roasted coffee from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. In Manuel Antonio, they will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. And for New Year’s Eve, the restaurant will have Brazilian music by Pura Bossa. For information, call 2777-0794.
