Tamarindo Talk

September 19, 2013

With the Tamarindo Marathon taking place on Saturday, Sept. 21, there will be tons of people in town to participate in the race and as spectators. If you are looking for an activity to do afterwards, then there’s a fun event at the Country Day School. They are hosting a Bingo afternoon at 4 p.m. right at the school. The purpose is to raise money for scholarships, as Country Day is now a nonprofit organization. For more information, contact Rocio Villalobos at 8341-6879 or Facebook her.
