Tamarindo Talk

May 5, 2011

There is a sense of frustration in the community as telephone communications company Claro repeatedly canceled arranged meetings to discuss its proposed towers in Tamarindo. According to emails going around town, a group of concerned residents has been trying to meet with representatives of the company to dissuade them from building the planned Tamarindo tower, and to offer solutions and alternatives. Claro has already cancelled two meetings with the group, and offered to reschedule after Easter. Stay tuned.

Lee’s Country Kitchen has initiated a bingo night every other Tuesday to help raise money to pay RoRo, who has been doing Tamarindo beach and road cleanup for more than 20 years. Aside from asking people to come out and play to raise money – the cost is ₡1,000 ($2) a card – the Tamarindo Improvement Association is asking businesses to donate prizes such as free meals, boat rides, massages, etc., for the bingo games. Of course, they will accept straight money donations as well. Gifts can be dropped off at Lee’s Country Kitchen, or call 2653-0127 or 8876-0508. Money deposits can be made to the Asociación Pro Mejoras account at Banco Nacional, number 200-02-145-000762-7.

Bamboo Sushi Club has relocated to a beautiful spot where the old La Barra used to be, across the street from the Copacabana on the main road of Tamarindo. Check out the new location and the expanded menu.
