Rumor has it that the desolate Garden Plaza shopping center surrounding the Automercado and Scotia Bank is going to be revived. Apparently, 16 new stores are planned, as well as a Middle-Eastern restaurant called Gazebo and a fully-equipped gymnasium. It will offer locals membership for $10. Keep an eye out for these changes when you hit the supermarket. It would be a good idea to patronize the new shops, so they don’t end up like the previous tenants.

Surfers looking for a new surfboard should check out Cheboards, a just opened factory located on the road from Villareal to Huacas, 100 meters south of the Best Western. The shop offers a variety of surfboards as well as repairs. In town, you also can find a selection of Cheboards at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.
