Tamarindo Talk

May 12, 2011

It looks like telephone communications company Claro has the Santa Cruz Municipality’s approval to build the 60-meter tower in the lot next to Casa Aigua, and is moving full steam ahead with the project. Claro representatives recently met with Tamarindo community members, who attempted to convince them to move the tower to the top of the ABC Realty building. Claro deemed the suggestion inappropriate. It now looks like the tower will go up in the original location, possibly as soon as May 31.

It seemed like it happened in the blink of an eye, which is unusual for Costa Rica: In a matter of two weeks, a group of dedicated folks got together and built a brand-new synthetic soccer and sports field on the main road at the Huacas intersection. The main funding for the construction came from Skullcandy, with shipping handled free by UPS and contributions from Little Feet, the nonprofit CEPIA, the Huacas Association and Sports Committee, Russell Wenrich, and Terry Anderson and his Force One Security. The field is now open to the public for play.

Sueño del Mar B-and-B offers breakfast to the public seven days a week. Enjoy luscious French toast, fruit plates, coffee and more. For directions and reservations, email suenodelmar@gmail.com or call 2653-0284.
