Jacó Happenings

December 9, 2010

Attention, holiday shoppers! Sanna Lampinen of Riviera Home Center says the store is receiving new containers this month and will have lots of new items at both its locations in Jacó. Stop in and see Chris Clark and Carolina Irias in the downtown center in front of Banco Nacional, or Ville Heikkilä and Gabriela Alpízar on Plaza Boulevard off Calle Ancha.

Natasha D’Amico and Bill McMenemy held the grand opening of the Design District Interior Design Studio at the end of last month. The store in Plaza Herradura has perfect gifts for those who love their homes. For information, call 2637-6133.

For nice souvenirs from Costa Rica, Souvenir Centro is moving with sister company Costa Rica Choppers to a new location in Plaza Il Galeone, on the main street in Jacó. And gift certificates from local spas, surf shops, tour companies, restaurants or hotels also make great gifts.

For kids, consider the gift of learning: tennis lessons with Carmen Blumenthal (2643-6015), surf lessons with María del Mar (2643-3197), children’s yoga at Aurora Wellness Center (8719-3028) or golf lessons at the Los Sueños Marriott (2630-9000). Also, children’s arts and crafts classes start Jan. 15 at El Pizote Listo-Jacó in the Ureña commercial center. Ninety-minute classes will be given once a week in Spanish and English by a bilingual British teacher. The cost is ₡2,000 ($4) per class or ₡7,000 ($14) a month, including materials. For information, contact Claire Parker at 8752-2960.

The next Central Pacific Women’s Group meeting is set for Dec. 15 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Balcón del Mar in Jacó. Bring a book to trade. For more information about the group, e-mail centralpacificwomens group@yahoo.com.

To get in the spirit of the holidays, Falcon International School students will be Christmas caroling around the tree in the Los Sueños Marriott lobby Dec. 15 at 6 p.m.
