Tamarindo Talk

September 5, 2012

There’s a new, reasonably-priced restaurant in Tamarindo. It’s the El Corcel Negro, located next to the Voodoo Lounge. Check out the buffet service, fried chicken and other delicacies. Hours are 7 a.m.-9 p.m.

Speaking of the Voodoo Lounge, you should probably head over on Tuesday nights for their Latin Living Dancing, which takes place all night. This is an extremely popular night and a chance to take in a little of the local flavor. If you miss that, Thursdays is ladies’ night, where women drink free from 9-10 p.m. and 11 p.m.-midnight.

Earlier in the evening, the restaurant is open with extraordinary fare: 1-pound lobsters, Brangus beef tenderloin, and duck Margret. The restaurant also offers a make-your-own menu, which comes with an appetizer, main course and dessert, for $30 plus tax.

Who does the recycling in Tamarindo? Where should you drop your stuff off? Nobody ever seems to be sure, but now you don’t have to even ask. There’s a fellow who will pick it up for you. All you have to do is separate and organize your recyclables in boxes or bags. This includes plastics, glass, metal such as aluminum cans, tin, steel, wire, broken appliances, paper and batteries of all types. Call Roberto at 2657-0032, 8941-7956 or 8749-6633.
