Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

May 1, 2009

It has once again come to our attention that the mangrove tours are feeding the monkeys. We are sorry to hear it, as this is not good for the monkeys. We would like to inform the public about which tours do not feed the monkeys and encourage people to go with them. Right now, the only one we know of is Safari Mangrove (2777-7111, www.safarimangrove.com). If you know of another tour company that doesn’t feed the monkeys, please let us know so we can list their names and contact information.

This month, Sister Cities International (SCI) Quepos will donate $3,000 to the municipality to jump-start the Manuel Antonio Ocean Rescue Program, and is working closely with the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) toward permanent equipment assistance for the local beach program. For the first time, the municipality has agreed to put two lifeguards on the city’s payroll to safeguard Manuel Antonio’s beaches. SCI Fort Lauderdale will continue to support SCI Quepos with ocean rescue training programs. If you are interested in volunteering, e-mail harrybodaan@sciquepos.com or conelio@sciquepos.com.

Laboratorio Clínico Six Sigma is now open in Quepos in the Aidrosa commercial center, above Sansa, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 2774-0480.
