Coco Capsule

July 6, 2011

With the lazy, crazy and very rainy days of summer now upon us, local residents are looking for new ways to pass the time. Many are starting their days at Coconutz, where breakfast is now being served daily starting at 7:30. The menu features a wide variety of Tico and North American specialties, and a bottomless cup of coffee is served with each offering.

Sunday mornings might begin with breakfast as well at the Papagayo Golf and Country Club, which is featuring Sunday Morning Golf with a 7 a.m. check-in and 8 a.m. shotgun start. The $45 fee includes driving range privileges, a golf card with green fees, breakfast and $5 toward the pot. Registration is open. For information, call 2697-0169.

BSK Spa in Ocotal has introduced a new type of nonsurgical wrinkle removal that, combined with various skin treatments, can reportedly take years off a patient’s appearance. For more information, check out www.skincarebsk.com or call 2670-1492.

The Hidden Gallery Art Gallery is featuring the work of Costa Rican artist Donaldo Voelker in a show entitled “From the Caribbean to Guanacaste” through July 14. The largest art gallery in Guanacaste, Hidden Gallery is five kilometers west of the Liberia airport. For information, call 8386-6968.

Congratulations to Coco Animal Rescue and Education (CARE) for reaching the 1,000 mark in neutered or spayed dogs and cats in the area, including my own newly adopted dog, Luna.
