Coco Capsule

October 5, 2012

U.S. military vets should be aware of a new group formed by Karen and Quinn Stack called Guanacaste Veterans Association. The purposes include providing information on veteran benefits and services, community participation, fellowship and just plain fun.  The first meeting was held poolside at the Papagayo Golf and Country Club on Sept. 15 and it featured a cookout as well as swimming for vets and their families, all thanks to the hospitality of club owner Dave Reynolds. For more information, contact Karen at 8938-3251, 8708-1352 or slack.karen@yahoo.com.

Many of our restaurants have closed until the first of September. As of deadline, the two that have officially announced closures are the popular new seafood place, Pisces in Ocotal, and the ever-popular Citron in the Pacifico Village Shops.
