 Due to bureaucratic red tape involving the construction company RAASA, the Comptroller General canceled the contract granted to RAASA by the National Roadway Council (CONAVI) for the anticipated work on the road from 27 de Abril to Villareal. It is now up to CONAVI once more to assign a company to proceed with the repair and paving of this much-used road. Doesn’t look like we’ll have smooth pavement there anytime soon. 

Agua Rica Scuba Diving is offering a low season deal for residents. The full open-water certification would normally run you $550, but now it only costs $400. The scuba diver certification, normally $400, is now only $300. You must have a minimum of four people to take advantage of this opportunity.  Looking for more information? Email Toni Onofri at agricadv@racsa.co.cr. 

The Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort has a couple of new restaurants. One is called the Flying Bull, and it has an international menu. It’s located next to the hotel’s new casino. Also check out the new Pizza Nari, housed where The Café used to be.
