Looking for a clean, gluten-free meal without white sugar, refined flour, artificial colors and flavors, synthetic nutrients and vitamins, palm oil and hydrogenated transfat? Try Wild Panda Healthy Food. The store prepares a different lunch every day from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and also sells organic coffee, power bars, vegan sweets and super-food smoothies. It’s located in front of BAC San José. For delivery, call 2653-1073.

During the last month, you may have seen Coopeguanacaste putting up monkey bridges and anti-climbing cones around the area. That’s because finally, the power company and the University of Costa Rica, along with Salvemonos’ Patricia Stedman and Simone Daniele, have come to an agreement to help save monkeys.

The UCR and Coopeguanacaste are studying places where electrical lines may cause harm to the animals. These locations have been and will be sites for monkey bridges. This is the first time that Salvemonos and the UCR will have the financial support of Coopeguanacaste. To get involved, check out salvemonos.org.
