Tamarindo Talk

October 25, 2013

More than 200 people gathered at Le Beach Club to honor the life of dear, sweet Torian Alisa whose life recently came to a sudden end. Everyone gathered in the early afternoon and just before sunset many surfers paddled out to reminisce and distribute flowers including Tori’s favorite, red roses. In attendance to say a few words about their lovely daughter were Tori’s parents. The activities culminated in a fireworks display set to the tune of Taylor Swift’s song, “Trouble.”

Good news on the Tamarindo Police front. According to the Association of Integral Development (ADI), the new police station in front of the Automercado is almost finished being refurbished to include space to work and holding cells. It is up to the Municipality to pay for the rent each month, and ADI is hopeful that it will come through. Currently, the police are looking for the donation of eight bicycles, because with them the area police administrator will guarantee Tamarindo eight policemen. For continued updates, go to Asociacion de Desarrollo Integral Playa Tamarindo on Facebook.

Halloween is arguably the biggest night in Tamarindo. This year there will be no shortage of events going on for ghouls and ghosts. On the night itself, wear your best costume for cash prices at Hotel Pasatiempo, Sharkeys, Tamarindo Diria and Aqua. On Friday, you can try again at the Crazy Monkey Bar at the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas. Boo!
