Costa Rica Coffee Guide

Coco Capsule

February 9, 2011

Two new and popular restaurants have opened in the Playas del Coco area, each with a very different focus. Restaurante Luciana (2670-1161) on Coco’s main street offers the freshest seafood and excellent paella. And just over the hill before the Congo Trail turnoff is Restaurante Donde Johann (2697-1533), offering a huge, eclectic menu bridging the flavors of the Far East to those of Mexico and many specialties in between, including Italian pastas and pizza and French desserts. Donde Johann also has a special children’s menu. Reservations are suggested for large groups.

Star Paddle recently opened in Coco with the idea of offering small groups the opportunity to explore the hidden coves and often hard-to-reach beaches in our area. For more information, call 8824-5060.

Simone Ferreira has been gathering groups for free volleyball and yoga lessons for those wanting to get into (or in some cases, back into) shape. Simone also offers small group and private yoga sessions. For more information, call her at 8375-2388.

And for a new wardrobe, check out Adriana’s Ropa Americana in Plaza Colonial, a boutique featuring the latest styles in men’s and women’s clothing.

For those interested in going to Granada, Nicaragua, I’ve recently completed a step-by-step guide based on my own experiences of how to get there and back, as well as some ideas of where to stay and eat and things to do. I’m making this available free of charge to any readers interested through the end of February, asking only that if the recipient finds the information helpful, a donation be made to Coco Animal Rescue and Education (CARE) or the dog and cat care center in the community in which you live.
