Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

April 24, 2009

Arenas del Mar Beach and Nature Resort received the Ecological Blue Flag award for Playa Dulce, where the resort is located, for the third consecutive year. Many community members attended the award ceremony, including from the chamber of commerce, Titi Conservation Alliance, Kids Saving the Rainforest, Safari Mangrove and Adobe Rent a Car. Kalinga Rodríguez, sustainability director for Arenas del Mar, did a great job with the ceremony and gave a very informative sustainability tour of the hotel after the event.

Thanks go out to Grupo Amigos de Manuel Antonio, which organized a beach cleanup at Manuel Antonio after the visitor rush during Semana Santa, or Easter Holy Week. It was definitely needed.

We have a new bilingual computer tech in the area, Pablo Oliva, who works with laptops, notebooks, PDAs, general network connections, wireless connections and voice over Internet protocol. He also cleans and upgrades PCs. To contact him, call 8355-5566.

If you have a Mac and you need service, there is a good place called Dr. Mac near the Coca-Cola station in San José. It’s certified by Apple and honors Apple service contracts. For an appointment, call 2222-5850.

Our get-well wishes go out to David Herpst, who recently had surgery in Quepos and again in San José. Get well soon, David, and hurry back! We miss you.
