Coco Capsule

September 7, 2011

The second week of September is bringing a lot of firsts to Las Playas. Starting tomorrow and lasting through Sunday is the first Fishing Rodeo at the Marina Papagayo.  This will be a fun, casual tournament starting with a cocktail party at the Dive Bar on Saturday. There’s an entry fee of $250 for a team of up to four anglers, which includes two nights’ dockage (Sept. 10 and 11). For more information, contact concierge@marinapapagayo.com.

Sunday, Sept. 11, will see the first Chili Cook-off in Playas del Coco. The party starts at noon at Woody’s, on the corner of the main boulevard and Mapache Road, and lasts until all the food is gone. Chili costs $1 a cup, and diners will have the chance to vote for their favorite. All proceeds go to Coco Animal Rescue and Education (CARE).

On the subject of CARE, tomorrow’s spay and neutering clinic will be held at the former restaurant across the street from San Carlos Home Center on Ocotal Road. This facility has plenty of covered waiting area space and seating, as well as lots of parking.

Sept. 15 is Independence Day and is also the date Luperón has scheduled Coco’s first flea market. Organizers Trámites Guanacaste and Supermercado Luperón invite everyone to participate both as sellers and as buyers. For more information, call 8347-9491 or 8814-9789.
