Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

August 24, 2011

The new Maxi Palí is up and running, open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. in front of the Quepos public high school. It is similar to a Walmart, and most people seem to be pleased with what they find there. Items offered include clothes, electronics, appliances, sheets, towels, cleaning products, office supplies like printer ink and paper, and all the goods you would find in a large supermarket. Secure parking is available; the guard gives each vehicle a parking marker that has to be returned to get out of the parking lot.

By the time you read this, we should have a new Subway franchise in Quepos, next to Super Más and across from the central market. It’s set to open Aug. 25 if all the materials arrive from the U.S. in time. In the mini-mall next to Subway are a cell phone store called Celulares Alex and a Dis Frutas smoothie shop, open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

A sad farewell to Joe Hernández, who owned the Internet café next to the park in Quepos. He passed away at just 54 years of age from diabetic complications. Our sympathies go out to his family.
