Flamingo / Potrero News
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.

For more info, call Barbara at 2654-4148 or stop by the pet shop in Flamingo.
