Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

May 5, 2011

Welcome back to Davis Henley, managing partner of Byblos Hotel, who recently completed a motorcycle ride that started in Austin, Texas, and took him all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. The 14,000-mile trip took him through 13 countries on a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle. Davis had his wife, Sari, riding on the back for the last 4,000 miles of the trip. Sari was battling breast cancer not that long ago, so this was a huge moment for her at her one-and-a-half-year cancer-free mark.

The Quepos public library is now under the administration of the Aguirre Municipality. It will continue to be housed in Barrio Rancho Grande for now, but we are told a new building is being planned near the municipal building in the center of town. The library has a large selection of books in English and Spanish.

When you need some reliable help for those jobs around the house, you can now call “the house doctor.” Johnny McDaniel, a transplant from the U.S., is available for all your fix-it needs and works wonders. Contact him at 8344-2879.

Liz Galloway is our local instructor of pole fitness, a fun, exciting and challenging fitness routine with many levels and layers. Classes are held at Spa Uno – a sister studio of one in the U.S. – Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m., with more classes upcoming as Liz brings in more high-level pole fitness trainers. For more information, call Liz at 2777-2607.

Good news for Hotel Makanda by the Sea here in Manuel Antonio: American Eagle Outfitters is partnering with the hotel to offer a trip to Costa Rica in its Nomad Summer Sweepstakes. Entries will be accepted until May 25, with no purchase necessary to participate. For more information or contest rules, call the hotel at 2777-0442; its website is at www.makanda.com.
