Jacó Happenings

August 10, 2011

The latest addition to Jacó’s culinary scene is Pane E Vino, originally from the Central Valley. They opened a new location in the El Jardín commercial center just south of Más x Menos. Manager Henry de Castro will have the place open every day serving traditional Italian focaccias, antipastos and pizzas. For information, call 2643-2710 or visit www.paneevino.co.cr.

Jacó has a new licensed Zumba fitness instructor, Jamie Nina Ford. After teaching Zumba classes in Japan last summer, Nina became a registered Zumba Instructor Network member and has brought her classes to Costa Rica. Classes are held upstairs in Plaza Coral, behind KFC, Mondays and Wednesdays. For more information, call 8971-9157.

After Zumba class, stop by Sandra Valencia’s store, Brissa (2643-1583), to pick out the perfect gift for Costa Rican Mother’s Day, Aug. 15. Open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Brissa offers funky jewelry, Chanel bags and cool caps. Or if mom has a sweet tooth, try the Café Britt Chocolate Macadamia Bar made of 70 percent cacao, now featured in the Herradura Auto Mercado. Jacó’s spas, restaurants and shops will also be offering plenty of Mother’s Day specials.

Support a good cause tonight at 9 p.m., at a Boxeo de Herradura benefit for youth boxing. The event will be held at Tsunami Sushi and Plankton on the second floor of Il Galeone mall in downtown Jacó, and will feature Latin American house music by DJ Dr. Leo and the presence of Tica boxing champ Hanna Gabriel for photos and autographs. Admission costs ₡2,500 ($5).
