Jacó Happenings

May 26, 2011

Anna Marie Molloy, Liana Robinson and Adam Dubroy completed the charity Bike Ride for Books from Jacó to Nicaragua and back. While in San Juan del Sur, on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, they met with the founder of that town’s library and saw how various programs are run there. And they got some great ideas and potential contacts for Spanish-language book discounts. They had an amazing time and raised approximately $1,000 for the Jacó Library. If you would like to volunteer at the library or make a donation, contact Liana at corner stonesfoundation@gmail.com.

If you are looking for something special to do tomorrow night, the Rodolfo Zúñiga Miami Quintet will perform out at Villa Caletas starting at 5:30 p.m. For more information, call 2630-3000.

Tentatively scheduled for next weekend is the Volcom Howler Monkey Fish Surf Series, set to start at 7 a.m. at Playa Jacó. The contest will feature categories for girls 17 and under, juniors 15 to 17, groms 14 and under, and squids 10 and under. For more information, email vqsinfo@volcom.com.
