San José, Costa Rica, since 1956

Tamarindo Talk

Beginning August 29, the Volcano Brewing Company will be closing its doors up in Arenal and shifting its beer making operations to a spot right next to its sister property, Tamarindo’s Witch’s Rock Surf Camp. Enjoy their flagship Witch’s Rock Pale Ale and Gato Malo Dark Ale beers fresh from the new location right next to the camp. In addition, check out the new brewpub menu at the new location that includes gourmet burgers, grilled shrimp, steak and other locally sourced dishes that go great with that beer.

There are some changes going down at Country Day School Guanacaste. The facility is transitioning to a nonprofit school, and will retain its U.S. accreditation and maintains all permits from Costa Rica’s Education Ministry. Of course, as a nonprofit, there will be a need to raise funds and will start with money donated from parents interested in furthering their children’s schooling. Country Day School Guanacaste will be open for the 2013-14 school year, and has record enrollments expected. For more information call 2654-5042, email or go to their website at

A couple of new things going on in Huacas: First is Rancho Guaymy, under the new management of Sonia Vallejos, there is a selection of free bocas, typical food, fresh seafood and wood-oven pizza. Located 150 meters west of SuperCompro, check out the karaoke every Friday at 8 p.m. And if you are looking for a new motorcycle, or just need repairs, you’ll want to go to Tecni Repuestos Huacas, 1 kilometer on the road towards Tamarindo. Call Rodolfo Rodríguez at 2653-6841 or email him at
