Marina Pez Vela held its first annual Christmas party last month for staff, boaters and friends. A good time was had by all. Many thanks to the marina operations staff for all their efforts; to Jeff Wells and his team from Jefe’s Restaurante y Cantina at Hotel Plinio for catering the event with their exciting new menu items; to Discomóvil Fiesta Latina for providing the music; and to the vessel Guayacán, owned by Iguana Tours, for helping set up the bar.

Liquid Disco Lounge will present Costa Rica’s first “Queer as Folk” party Jan. 29. The sound of the most popular gay TV show ever is coming to Manuel Antonio as part of a Latin American tour with DJ Peter Presta, producer of “Proud,” the show’s theme song, which has been chosen as the song for the 2012 Olympics in London. Peter has collaborated with or remixed well-known artists such as Masters At Work, Danny Tenaglia, Moby, Joey Beltran and Robbie Rivera, to name just a few. For information, see www.peterpresta.com.
