Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

June 9, 2011

The Día de Chicas Style Show was held recently at Hotel Plinio in Manuel Antonio. The event showcased the designer fashions of Roy Chávez, owner of Eslabón in Quepos. Models displayed fashions around the pool area, while guests enjoyed bocas, drinks and the sun. In addition, Givenchy Rojas showed her exclusive bags, Seidy Montero displayed her custom-made jewelry, Liz from Dani Peluquería exhibited cosmetics and hair care products, and Sandy Franz demonstrated facials using anti-aging products. Sandy also educated the ladies on proper skin care and wrinkle treatment and prevention. Gifts from the vendors were presented to the winners of the door prize drawing. The event was organized and presented by Jan Blackwell of Quepos.

Hotel Makanda by the Sea was given the prestigious honor of being selected as cover hotel for the 25th Silver Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Lanier Publishing’s Elegant Small Hotels guidebook, which went on sale in May. We hope this cometed award will garner more international attention for Manuel Antonio and all the great things we have to offer here.

Congratulations to Janine Licare, who was raised in Manuel Antonio and is graduating from Stanford University in California this weekend. She starts training with Teach for America next week for a two-year position teaching Spanish-speaking elementary children in East Los Angeles. Way to go, Janine!
