Coco Capsule

March 17, 2011

Gifts from the sea arrive in Playas del Coco in many ways, recently from a large group of guests that embarked from the small cruise ship Wind Star, which docked here for an overnight stay. The cruise, sponsored by Olivia Vacations for Women out of the U.S. city of San Francisco, had long planned a port of call here, and many of the cruisers were aware of the success of CARE, sponsor of this region’s highly successful spay and neuter clinics, thanks to Olivia founder Judy Dlugcaz, vice president Jill Cruse and Sallyanne Monti, a Coco resident who also acts as a marketing consultant for the company.

The night before arrival, Jill addressed the passengers about CARE, and fliers were given to all travelers asking them to consider giving back to the community. As they came ashore the next morning, the ladies were greeted by CARE volunteers Mickey Neill, Debbie Klatt and Paul Johnston, who, together with several healthy pets rescued by CARE, welcomed the guests, accepted their donations and provided tips on what to see and do while ashore. More than $1,300 was gathered from this group of ladies, who went on to spend the day enjoying a number of only-in-Guanacaste activities, including a quick trip to Arenal, zip-lining at the Congo Trail and relaxing beachside at the Pacifico Beach Club.

And there is a new permanent resident in our harbor, the 68-foot catamaran Marlin del Rey. Sister ship to one very popular in Tamarindo, the Marlin del Rey is now hosting both day and sunset cruises and is available for private parties and weddings. Guests can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboating, as well as full bar service from an experienced crew. For more information, call 2653-1212 or e-mail info@marlindelrey.com.
