Costa Ballena Bulletin

May 16, 2012

Have you been to the newly expanded D.A.W.G. Tales Lending Library in Uvita? We now have one of the largest collections of English-language nonfiction and fiction books in Costa Rica – more than 4,000 – and all proceeds go to Domestic Animal Welfare Group (D.A.W.G.). The membership is free, and any book or DVD costs {1,000 ($2). 

The Domestic Animal Welfare Group is a nonprofit organization dedicated to stray-animal control, rescue, rehabilitation and placement and animal care education. The library is located in the Centro Veterinario Costa Ballena building on the street level in Uvita.

We are open Wednesdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. All our adoptees are treated for parasites, vaccinated, spayed/neutered and are in the library on Saturdays, ready to take home. We also assist with transportation to the U.S. and Canada. Please visit us on Facebook, D.A.W.G. (Domestic Animal Welfare Group), for pictures and news updates.

Roca Verde Hotel and Restaurant, located right on the beach, has dumped the Disco and now has live music every Friday night at 7 p.m. Come on down to Dominicalito and shake a leg! The Roadhouse169 at kilometer 169 between Uvita and Ojochal serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has specials, live entertainment and more on Thurs.-Sun. Send a note to roadhousekm169@gmail.com to get the latest scoop.

If you haven’t been shopping in Uvita on Saturday morning, you are missing a great little farmers and crafts market. Fresh produce, homemade foods and talented artisans abound. The market is located 50 meters west of Banco de Costa Rica in Rincón de Uvita, and is open Saturdays from 8 a.m.-noon. Come visit us, where the sea meets the mountains.
