Tamarindo Talk

Fantastic news! The gas station located on the road from Villareal to Haucas is finally open. No more long drives to fill up the tank. 

There are also a couple of new eateries to enjoy in the area. First, check out Mamasa, a farm-to-table restaurant in Playa Grande (500 meters before Kike’s on the right). The restaurant is open for bunch from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., as well as dinner on Saturday. They offer special prix fixe menus, for example, a recent array of Jamaican cuisine. The restaurant is closed Monday. Contact Mamasa at 5002-5468 or or check out the Facebook page, mamasarestaurant.

Then there’s Foodlab, a company together with Pippo Import offers pasta, wines, cheeses, meats and many other imported goods at a great price. Located on the main road out of Tamarindo, 50 meters east of Arpe hardward store, Foodlab will cater to special needs as well. Call 8845-4002 or email
