San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Tamarindo Talk

Starting this week, the nonprofit CEPIA will host summer camp for children of the community aged 5-13 who want to have fun during the Costa Rican school vacation. The free camp, which takes place Monday to Friday, 8 a.m.-noon, at the CEPIA center and the Brasilito hall, includes art class, games, sports, photography, cooking, sports, chess and other activities, as well as a snack. For more information, call 2653-8533.

Wok N Roll, which recently reopened in a gorgeous space after being destroyed in a fire last year, is having Sushi Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 6-7 p.m., when you can get your sushi fix for half price. They’ve also added an oyster bar, open all night with three different mignonette sauces. Look for the grand opening of the upstairs lounge any day now.

Tucked away in Langosta, the lovely Sueño del Mar bed-and-breakfast offers breakfast to the public daily from 7-11 a.m. This is a delicious three-course breakfast right on the beach, so give it a try.

A new Italian restaurant has opened in the Tamarindo Resort, opposite Kahiki on Langosta Road. It’s called Las Brasas, and Simone Ceccarelli is the proprietor. Unique specials here include the Fiorentina a la Piedra, a 1.3-kilogram T-bone steak cooked to your liking at your table on a hot stone.

To get your clothes cleaned cheap, now you can go to the Wash-a-Go-Go in Villareal, across from the Megasuper, or in Huacas, next to Famacia El Cruce. Use of the washing machine costs ₡2,000 ($4) and the dryer ₡1,000 ($2), or they will do it for you. For information, call 8704-1510.
