Tamarindo Talk

February 24, 2011

Two businesses that were affected by November’s devastating fires are making their way back. Kahiki Restaurant, a local favorite, has reopened in a beautiful new facility at its original location on the road to Langosta. Kahiki offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, and happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. Four large-screen TVs will please the sports fans.

Sharkys Bar, which burned down last year, has been throwing “Raise the Carcass” parties to raise funds for rebuilding. Lots of people come out to support the popular sports and entertainment facility at these events, which take place in the open-air skeleton of the burned-down bar.

Gary Boyd has opened a chiropractic practice in Tamarindo. Gary, who moved to Tamarindo from Liberia, and previously the U.S. state of Georgia, will be working out of an office above Super Compro. He also counsels people on weight loss and how to stop smoking. A 10 percent discount is extended for your first visit. To make an appointment, call 2653-1974 or e-mail boyddc@hotmail.com.

There’s a new toy at Pura Aventura, the canopy tour about 20 minutes from Tamarindo. In addition to taking canopy, horseback and ATV tours, you can now get inside the Zorb-X. This is like a giant beach ball you can get inside of and roll around in. Sounds like loads of fun. For more information, call 2658-0781, 8883-5703 or 8873-7236, or e-mail info@canopypura aventura.com.
