Tamarindo Talk

The Beach Nuts Theatre Company are doing a special presentation of “The Wizard of Oz” with a cast made up of young children. Once again helmed by local director Paul Belanger, the showings will take place at Fisch Restaurant tonight, tomorrow and Sunday. You can get your advance tickets of $10 at Jaime Peligro Bookstore, or pay $15 the night of the play. Showtime is 7 p.m.

Gotta love shoes right? Did you know that besides being able to get women’s shoes custom made at Papaya Con Leche here in Tamarindo, it is only a short ride to Haucas to a full shoe store? Called Kaytes, there are shoes for men, women and children. Located diagonal to Banco Popular, the store hours are Monday to Saturday 9 a.m.-7 p.m., and they are closed on Sunday.

Surfers are always looking for pictures of themselves getting a great ride. Robin and Dan Chapman take surf pictures of pros and beginners. You can reach them at 8465-5200 or 8465-5233 or email

Pangas Beach Club, located across the street from El Tesoro, has started Sunday Funday. This is an activity-filled day for kids, including face painting, games, live music and activities for adults as well. The fun begins at 11 a.m. Later there is an all-you-can-eat, which costs $16.50. Kids under 11 eat for $7.50; children under 3 eat free

As a special FYI, Pangas is also a fish market. They offer fresh fish and seafood, which is displayed in a case. The owners say that the fish is available two to three days earlier than others. The fish market is opened from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
