Arenal Report

July 31, 2009

Tilarán’s own medical test lab has opened 125 meters south of the Banco Nacional, making it unnecessary to descend to Cañas for blood and urine tests. Called Laboratorio Chávez Cantillano, it’s open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The phone numbers are 2695-6735 and 8334-9028.

If you make the climb up to Eco Lodge at 5 p.m. Sunday, you can indulge in a vegetarian buffet complemented by wine, beer and an indigenous Maleku presentation. Of course, no special event around the lake is complete without the inimitable folk-rock singing and strumming of Bob Benjamin Zúñiga, and Bob will be playing here, too. The cost is $15 for the evening. For more information and reservations, call Fabiana at 2694-4480 or 2694-4450. The road up to the Eco Lodge mountaintop starts at a big sign about four kilometers west of Nuevo Arenal. The road has been greatly improved this summer.
