Costa Rica Coffee Guide

Coco Capsule

July 21, 2011

As I write this column on what can only be described as a gloomy morning, the one topic that seems immediately appealing is the Summer Special offered by La Caveja, the popular pizza joint in downtown Coco.  Buy a total of five pizzas at any time throughout the rest of the season and get the sixth free.  La Caveja is open daily except Mondays.

Realizing that the sun will, indeed, come out eventually, I’d like to point out two new ways to explore the area, neither of which are on foot.  Kylee Turner has opened Haras del Mar Equestrian Center at Lomas del Mar just 10 km south of Sardinal on the Monkey Trail.  Set in the hills in a fairly isolated area, the well equipped facility not only provides trail rides, but also riding lessons and instruction, and boarding facilities.  For more information, contact kyleeturner@hotmail.com or call 2697-1722.

Closer to home, Bicycles for Rent has opened between Monge and Farmacia Sucre.  Bikes can be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis at very reasonable rates, giving us a good way to head down to that distant beach in Ocotal or the north end of Coco.
