At the height of the green season, several restaurants close their doors and others stay open to keep the community coming back. Mar y Sol, Coco Loco and Amberes are all closed until November. For now, check out Maxwell’s in Surfside. Mike and Kelly Maxwell offer daily specials, which are always delicious. Call them at 2654-4319 to find out what’s on the menu or visit their Facebook page.

Congratulations to Flamingo resident Barbara Deppe, who is one of our animal champions here in Guancaste. She just received authorization for permits from the Costa Rican government to open her official rescue center. The government also informed her that a veterinarian would be coming to her center weekly to help out. Thank you to all who helped Barbara with support and donations. For more info, call Barbara at 2654-4148 or stop by the pet shop in Flamingo.

Ruta La Paz is back with its third edition. Grab your running shoes and bring the whole family to join in a breathtaking run on the beach, followed by music at sunset on Nov. 10. Ruta La Paz III is a perfect opportunity for participants of all ages and skill levels to come together for a healthy sport, while raising funds for scholarships at La Paz Community School. More info soon.
