Tamarindo Talk

October 11, 2012

The people of Tamarindo now have another option for a place of worship. An Episcopal church called Saint Paul’s by the Sea offers services every Sunday at 10 a.m. with Reverend Pedro Méndez. The church is located at Plaza Tamarindo, on the second floor, #18, and you can reach the reverend at 8417-8694.

Next month, Mango Groove Surf Club will be opening in Playa Avellanas. Located steps from the beach, it will feature fresh, local and healthy food, drinks and surfing. Check out more details on Facebook.

Halloween will be celebrated in typical grand Tamarindo tradition. A few nights before, on Saturday, Oct. 27, head to Aqua for the big blowout party. There will be huge cash prizes for best costume. On Halloween night itself, check out Sharkeys, as well as the open mic night at Hotel Pasatiempo.

Early registration is available until Oct. 19 for the 3rd annual Ruta La Paz, a run on Tamarindo beach followed by sunset music. The actual event, set for Nov. 10 at 3:30 p.m., is open to all ages and skill levels, all with the goal of raising money for La Paz Scholarship Program. There will be a 5k and a 10k starting in front of the Tamarindo Rotunda.

Early registration is $20; from Oct. 20-Nov. 9 its $23; and race day the price is $26. A free Children’s Beach Dash will take place at 3 p.m. You can register in Flamingo at La Paz Community School (2654-4532), in Tamarindo at Nogui’s Restaurant (2653-0029) or in San José at Newton Store (Sabana 2296-3031, Curridabat 2253-3687).
