Tamarindo Talk

October 28, 2010

Tamarindo recently hosted the national triathlon championships at Hacienda Pinilla. Athletes participated in the contest by swimming, running and biking in a variety of categories. The event was hosted by the United Triathlon Federation of Costa Rica.

Families now have new activities to keep them busy in the area. Koi Sushi Lounge, on the top floor of Aqua discotheque, has started Family Fun Day every Sunday, when they show a movie on a large screen and kids eat free from a kids’ menu. For information, call 8705-7638.

Aqua disco has a big Halloween party planned Oct. 30, and is offering $1,000 in prizes for the best costumes. Sharky’s will also offer cash prizes for various best costumes.

Olga’s Coffee Shop now offers a vegan, gluten-free breakfast special. Try the tofu scramble with scallions, served on a bed of steamed lentils with corn tortilla, avocado and fried plantain, for ₡2,000 ($4).

Tamarindo area community members recently attended a meeting at the Tamarindo Diria hotel to discuss ways to improve water quality in Tamarindo Bay. The goal is to help earn back the Ecological Blue Flag award, which everyone hopes will draw more tourists to our town.

El Mirador Bar and Restaurant reopened recently with a new menu and a new chef. Check it out.
