Great news for Tamarindo car owners: A gas station is being constructed on the road from Villarreal to Huacas, and looks to be completed within three months. The new facility is owned by Jorge Enrique Rodríguez, a civil engineer with over 30 years of experience in managing gas stations.
The annual Robert August Surf ’n’ Turf returns to Tamarindo March 29 to April 1, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the nonprofit CEPIA to benefit the children of Guanacaste. This charity event gives you the opportunity to spend quality time with the legend who put Tamarindo on the surfing map with his “The Endless Summer 2” segment on the town.
Activities begin with a registration cocktail party March 29 at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp’s Vaquero Restaurant, with dinner, a live band and a silent auction. The next day is the surf contest at Playa Avellanas, and another silent auction during the day, followed by a cocktail dinner at the Diria Hotel. March 31 is the golf tournament at Hacienda Pinilla. On April 1, everyone is invited on the Marlin Del Rey catamaran cruise, and that night will be the awards ceremony at Vaquero Restaurant. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Bistro Langosta restaurant has reopened for dinner. For reservations, call 8530-4121.
