Tamarindo Talk

August 8, 2012

The shoe division of Kata Kis’ Papaya Con Leche is located in the kiosk outside the bikini shop, and there are presently four types of shoes, including Greek sandals, a slip-ons and one with a tiny bow.

All the shoes are made with stretch fabric, and if you don’t see a pattern you like, Kis will custom-make you shoes within two weeks. Women, these shoes are not to be missed.

The Tamarindo Marathon happens Sunday, Sept. 22. This event has become a major attraction in Costa Rica. The race includes a 5k, 10k, 21k, 30k and 42k, which start at 5 a.m. and takes runners through town and past natural wonders. International competitors will join from Costa Rica, Kenya, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and the U.S., as well as some European nations. To sign up, visit www.tamarindobeachmarathon.com.

If you are interested in a day of pampering, give yourself the gift of a day spa at Los Altos de Eros. They will come pick you and take you to their gorgeous open-air facility in the mountains of Cañafistula. While you wait for your treatments, you can soak in the Jacuzzi while looking out over the greenery to the ocean.

Then choose between a one-and-a-half hour massage or manicure/pedicure, in addition to other options including a variety of facials, body scrubs, body wraps or a soaks in the Indonesian Tub. The price is $250, but you are worth it. End the day with a delicious lunch before being returned to your original location. Get full list of services on the website at www.losaltosdeeros.com or call 8850-4203.
