Tamarindo Talk

July 27, 2013

There is a lot of talk around town – and we know how that goes! – that the Municipality of Santa Cruz is planning to get together with the Public Works Ministry (MOPT) to put an asphalt layer on the 220-meter road that goes from Tamarindo to Langosta. They are supposed to get this underway in about two months. Although the sub-base was finished a couple months ago, with the rain it has already developed new potholes. At the time, MOPT had planned to pave the road, but there was a bureaucratic error made that prevented this from happening. Let’s see what happens now.   

Frijoles Locos in Playa Grande has initiated a great new idea. For $75 per person, they will arrange a Playa Grande Day Pass, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds. Of course, you may say, “I can go to Playa Grande for free.” However, with this Day Pass, Frijoles Locos provides a tent for shade, a boogie board, cooler with ice, bicycle, a surf lesson and lunch. To get in on the deal, call 2652-9235 or email surf@frijoleslocos.com.

What could be better than a new shoe store? Head out to Huacas, in a spot diagonal to Banco Popular, and you will find Kaytes. They have shoes for men, women and children with discounts of 10 to 50 percent. Open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The phone numbers are 8394-1640 and 2653-6202.
