Sander Werink’s three-day Semana Santa Wakeboard Camp starts April 18 at Puerto San Luis Lodge and Yacht Club. The three days of instruction and fun, sponsored by Sander’s company, FlyZone, begins at 9:30 a.m. Monday. Two nights at the lodge and food are included with the camp for a total cost of $375 per person. Attendance is limited. If there is still room, reservations may be made at firstname.lastname@example.org. The FlyZone website is at www.flyzone-cr.com.
Tonight, April 15, is the Concierto del Bosque, an opportunity to listen to good Celtic music by Tico band Peregrino Gris at the forested Ecolodge Lago de Coter, starting at 5 p.m. The cost is ₡5,000 ($10) per person for the concert alone, ₡15,000 ($30) for the concert and dinner, or ₡32,000 ($64) for concert, dinner, a night’s lodging and breakfast. Five percent of the proceeds will go toward reforestation projects. The lodge was the subject of a nice feature in The Tico Times recently (TT, April 1), so last-day reservations may be a problem. Contact the lodge at 2694-4400, 2694-4306 or ecolodge email@example.com, or visit www.ecolodgecostarica.com.
Among the businesses standard to North America but missing in Costa Rica are Laundromats, a lack fairly frequently lamented. We have heard that one of our lake villages will perhaps this year be notable for having such a convenience, as well as a cyber coffee shop. Extensive remodeling of an existing structure must first be done, however, to accommodate these two businesses and perhaps two others.
