The second date of the National Surf Circuit is set to take place this weekend in Palo Seco de Parrita, in front of Hotel La Isla. The competition begins Saturday, Feb. 26, at 7 a.m. For more information, see www.surfingcr.net.

For a great new spot to check out, visit chef Marcel Gauthier at his new Seaside Diner, 25 meters east of Isaga on Copacabana Street in Jacó. Marcel is truly passionate about food and innovative in working with fresh local ingredients, fish, meat and salads. His open-air dining area features an exclusive wine menu and fabulous ocean views. Seaside is open noon to 10 p.m., and chef Marcel is available for private catering as well. For information, call 2643-0050 or visit www.seasidediner.net. And to try out some new local beer, stop by Los Amigos and try Libertas tropical golden ale and Segua red ale, brewed by Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company in Cartago.
