Jacó Happenings

June 5, 2012

Paul and Cassidy Barbeau have relocated their Pura Vida Pantry to a large, outdoor setting in Herradura, with tropical garden seating for 16. The same inventive and healthy meals are offered daily, as well as raw, vegan and gluten-free snacks (also available for takeaway).

Cassidy Barbeau can prepare weekly meal plans for specialty diets. She offers private cooking lessons, and Paul Barbeau is growing some of the finest wheatgrass around. Juice cleanses and wellness detoxes are available through the pantry as well. Call 8733-4811 for more info, or email puravidapantry@gmail.com.

Glen Bain from Costa Rica Pools has taken the lead on beach cleanups in Jacó. Together with John Walker and The Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce, Glen has been instrumental in motivating locals, tourists and business owners to take pride in keeping Jacó clean.

More than 30 people have volunteered in what will now be a monthly event, every third Monday of the month. If you or your business would like to be involved, contact Glen at costaricapools@hotmail.com or the chamber at cenpac.chamber@gmail.com. The chamber will be having its annual public meeting June 26 at 7 p.m. in Balcón del Mar.
