Arenal Report

July 24, 2009

The Lake Arenal Forum has a new free phone service, among a lot of other enhancements. You can sign up to take advantage of the myriad benefits by going to www.duralavida.com. Make sure you register with your name; they get pretty bent out of shape if you register with some sort of alien code or clever tease.

There’s no gallo pinto on the new breakfast menu at 5 Corners Grill, but the huevos rancheros, omelets, pancakes, waffles, granola and other North American treats too numerous for this writer to remember will take your mind off the beans and rice, at least occasionally. Jim Aoki and his staff at the Cinco Esquinas intersection start serving at 8 a.m. Following breakfast, lunch is served until 2 p.m.

Toad Hall, the gallery and restaurant that has been a favorite tourist stop for years on the lake highway, between the dam and Nuevo Arenal, is for sale and has been for some time. Sadly, creative owner Dave Warner is now seriously ill in the United States.

Computadores Tilawa is now a drop point for getting printer’s ink cartridges refilled. Nicki Grekos from Paraíso, Guanacaste, will pick up cartridges and return them filled. The computer shop is just south of Repuestos Royer and just before the flower shop. For information, e-mail monsterink.cr@gmail.com.
