Flamingo / Potrero News

August 22, 2012

On July 30, Abriendo Mentes, a nonprofit organization based in Potrero and dedicated to the educational development of rural Guanacaste, welcomed students back into the classroom after its annual July break.

The organization also has a new youth development director, Tara Yanez. Abriendo Mentes is a volunteer-driven organization located in Playa Potrero. For more info, visit www.abriendomentes.org.

Mother’s Day is a holiday in Costa Rica, and several local restaurants honored mothers with care and love. Individually wrapped, fresh cut roses and other flowers have been flying around in celebration of this event.

Local Potrero/Surfside musician Don Carlos has upcoming performances at local hot spots, including Papaya restaurant at the Conchal Hotel in Brasilito and El Coconut restaurants in both Potrero and Tamarindo.

Flamingo residents Glenn and Tracy Godfrey and their five children have made the trek back to the U.S. Two of their older children graduated high school in Guanacaste in June and moved back to the States for the summer before they enter college.

The Godfrey family came to Costa Rica more than a year ago and enjoyed the adventure, as well as the challenges that go along with living here. They are sad to leave, and will be missed. We look forward their return visits!
