Manuel Antonio / Quepos Tidings

September 5, 2012

Sunday is National Children’s Day. If you are looking for a fun event on Children’s Day, Kids Saving The Rainforest (KSTR) is hosting one at Hotel Byblos in Manuel Antonio from 1-5 p.m. There will be fun kids’ activities and bands for the adults. It is also a fundraiser to save the Wildlife Rescue Center, the only legal one in the zone.

If they cannot get community support, they will have to close. Please support the wildlife of our area and have a great time at the event! Tickets are being sold at Jungle Juice, Sanchos Restaurant, Byblos Hotel, and Hotel Mono Azul. You can also pay for tickets at the door at Hotel Byblos. Tickets are $25 for adults, and that includes two drinks, food, entertainment, and supporting a good cause.

Tickets for kids are $10, and that includes an ice cream or a drink, four hours of fun with a camp counselor, and a four-hour break for the parents who can dance, drink and have a great time knowing their kids are having a great time, too. If you have any questions or would like to donate to this cause, please call KSTR at 2777-2592.

We have a new nail salon in Quepos, Fantasy Nails. It’s on the second floor above L’Angalo next to Unmara, the bikini store. The services include pedicure, manicure, nail construction, and nail art. Coming soon will be eyelashes as well. For more info, contact owner Shirley Abarca at 8702-7454 or fantasynailscr@gmail.com. Business hours are Mon.-Fri., 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sat., 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Appointments are recommended.

Is anyone wondering about name and logo TIGO that you are now seeing in the area? It is the old Amnet, which was the old Cable Quepos! Same services, same channels.
