Flamingo/Potrero News

The Flamingo Association is now offering for the benefit of the community a spray service against the mosquitoes that carry dengue (Aedes aegypti). You can have your home, hotel, condo or restaurant sprayed for a reasonable price. For information or to schedule an appointment, contact Donovan García at 2654-4444 or dgarcia@dhmhotels.com.

An encore presentation of the talented Cardamomo group took place Aug. 7 at the Yellowfin Lounge in Playa Flamingo. The exciting, unique show combined flamenco guitar, dancing, staccato hand-clapping, world music and belly dancing. The cost of admission included a welcome cocktail, hookahs, a raffle and a great night of culture and entertainment.

Laura Luconi, proprietor of the fairly new Cafetería La Ola in Flamingo’s López commercial center, has worked to provide a menu that is healthy and nutritious for her patrons. She serves a variety of traditional plates, slush drinks, burgers and desserts that have all been approved by San José nutritionist Maripaz Tormo. This allows Laura to feel good about catering to three local schools and the CPI language school. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. For information, call 2654-5912 or 8381-3855.

All of us in Guanacaste are affected by the calcium levels in our water and see buildups of calcium deposits on our kitchenware, showers and swimming pools. A device called the Calcium Tamer water conditioner can neutralize the calcium and lime molecules in our hard water by passing them through a magnetic field in the water pipe, creating soft water that will not leave residue.

The device is inexpensive and makes a dramatic difference as soon as it is installed. For more details, contact Christian Lemouche, who will come to your home or business and evaluate your needs, at calcium.

Just a reminder that Zumba, Pilates and yoga classes are offered at the Jungle Gym in Flamingo on various days. For schedules and information, call 2654-4684.
