Tamarindo Talk

May 10, 2013

Marcela Rodríguez has opened ABC Daycare, where she is taking care of young children who are not in school. She has set up a wonderful, playful environment for kids in a house on the road to Villareal diagonal from Kalima supermarket. Call her at 8838-2808 or 8757-9379.

     CEPIA just keeps helping children. In collaboration with the University ULICORI of Santa Cruz, the organization has initated a physical rehabilitation program to all children of the area in need. Students work two days a week with kids who have cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, down syndrome and delayed psychomotor development. CEPIA would like to thank Carolina Varela, a professor, and her students for working in this program.

     Other CEPIA news includes the implementation of new courses for the community. Available now are classes in makeup, computer, English and yoga. They also continue with the Food Bank project, which offers food to 12 single mothers in exchange for their services in cleaning the center, recycling and producing handicrafts. The cost to sponsor a family is $50 per month. To find out about the rehab as well as course date and times, and how to contribute the money for the Food Bank, call 2653-8533 or email cepiacostarica@gmail.com.

      While already offering a convenient postal service that delivers here with a U.S. address, at Mailboxes Etc. Tamarindo you can order hard-to-find or expensive auto-parts and have them shipped to their facilities. After ordering the auto parts online, they will arrive to your private mailbox within 1 ½ to 2 weeks.  For more info, call 2653-4670, email info@mbetamarindo.com, or stop by the store on the way out of Tamarindo just past the Automercado and hardware store on the right hand side of the road (green building).

    Although most people know Mauro Camera’s Argentine restaurant Patagonia serves amazing grilled meats (and vegetarian dishes) for dinner, it’s good to note that the place is now open for lunch. Located around the corner from Camera’s Bamboo Sushi Club, they can be reached by phone at 2653-0612.
