Tamarindo Talk

September 24, 2010

The local Blue Flag committee is working hard to regain the high-quality eco-certification for Tamarindo Beach. Recently, the committee organized a lecture by EARTH University for the community about the need to implement sustainable measures in our area, and the committee is intent on establishing ongoing community awareness.

In an effort to get back the Blue Flag for Tamarindo Beach, the committee is working to fulfill the requirements, including beach signage, purchasing garbage cans, recycling, involving local schools in various tasks, conducting water quality tests at various points and more. In the past month, the committee also has met with the Santa Cruz Municipality and mayor, the Costa Rican Water and Sewer Institute (AyA), the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) and the founder of the Blue Flag program to make sure no stone goes unturned. The deadline for everything to be completed is November, when the Blue Flags are awarded.

Tamarindo area resident and real estate developer Donny Lalonde, the former World Boxing Council Light Heavyweight Champion known as the Golden Boy, is in discussions for a book, documentary and feature film about his life story.

The fourth edition of Pothole magazine is now on shelves everywhere in Tamarindo. Grab a copy.
