Notes from Puerto Viejo De Talamanca

August 10, 2011

The Puerto Viejo area has a great group of people working on our community security committee. They are organizing beach patrols, promoting clear and transparent communication on the website www.caribe seguro.com, and fixing up the police station to help reduce crime in our area. The committee is working closely with the police to make the police station a place to really service the public, and to help the police be more effective. They have worked together to build a new holding cell in Puerto Viejo and are starting on construction of showers and an eating area.

Although the committee is hoping to do this project mostly through donated materials and labor – skilled carpenters, welders, plumbers and electricians, as well as general laborers willing to donate their time – they may still have to buy some items and hire some specialized labor. Cash donations for the renovation fund are welcome, and may be given to Frank León at Cabinas Los Almendros in Puerto Viejo. If you have any extra construction materials in your bodega to contribute, contact the committee via the website, or write Manuel Pinto at manu@caribesur.net to get involved and informed.

The folks from the nonprofit Asociación EDACS (Escuela de Artes del Caribe Sur) are gearing up for the annual ArteViva event, to be held Sept. 23 to 25 in Punta Uva. There will be art exhibitions, live music, sporting events, theater and free workshops on art, alternative medicine, painting, dance, yoga and more. For more information, visit www.arteviva-puertoviejo.com. September and October are the best months to spend time on the Caribbean – flat seas and lots of sun – so come out and support this wonderful event that works to protect and empower local culture. Donations are welcome, and may be accompanied by promotion for your business; for information, contact Claudio Ambroso at 8842-1741 or artenelcaribe@yahoo.com.
