San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

I recently ate the best Mexican food of all my 20 years in Manuel Antonio. It was at Sancho’s Restaurant across from Barba Roja. Owned by Marshall and Penny, both wonderful hosts, this place is highly recommended. We had to wait for a table (it says a lot when a restaurant is full during low season), but it was worth the wait. It is open daily, 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Sancho’s also delivers. Call 2777-0340 to order a great Mexican meal or get more information.

Welcome back, Catherine Fleming! We are thrilled she has returned, and that she brought her mom, Mary Margaret Fleming, with her. Mary is a great addition to our community, and her background is fascinating. She has been a member of Rotary since 1988 and was world chair of Rotary’s public image. She started seven Rotary clubs, and is a former district governor and a fine artist. See her work at
