There’s nothing like a presidential visit to clean up a community, and in the weeks preceding the July 24 visit of President Laura Chinchilla, citizens and government employees alike were busy trimming trees along the main boulevard of Coco. Grass was cut, curbs painted and general beautification exploded with new flags throughout the community. The purpose of all of this was the dedication of our newly finished beachfront promenade, a yearlong project that includes benches, play areas and soon booths for artists and vendors. The visit corresponded with Guanacaste Annexation Day, and festivities went on into the night.
Casa Bonita Mexican restaurant has opened at Ladera del Mar, a few hundred meters down the hill toward Sardinal from the Hermosa-Coco intersection. The restaurant specializes in authentic homemade Mexican food and features Mexican beers and drink specialties. It opens for a late lunch at 2 p.m. and serves dinner until 10.
For over a year, meat lovers in Las Playas have driven up to Carnes San Martín warehouse across from the airport for the finest beef, pork and poultry in the area. Now, Carnes San Martín has come to Coco, thanks to Uncle Earl’s, the barbecue restaurant on our main boulevard. Orders may be placed any day of the week for Tuesday or Thursday delivery. For a listing of what is available during a given week, call 8877-4719 or stop by – just look for the smoke rising from the meat smoker. And while there, check out the Party Pack Specials for that next fiesta you’re hosting.
