Jacó Happenings

At last month’s Central Pacific Women’s Group meeting, Environment Ministry volunteer Raúl Fernández talked about his nonprofit, which helps bring volunteers to the wildlife refuge in Playa Hermosa. Raúl also brought coffee samples from his grandfather’s farm, Finca Rica Coffee.

If you are interested in a tour or buying coffee, contact Raúl at costaricacoffee@gmail.com or call him at 8817-0385. For more about his endeavors, visit www.costaricaallgreen.com.

The next CPWG meeting on June 20 will feature indigenous art from the Amazon and adventure stories from biologist Joost Wilms of Dantica Gallery.
