Tamarindo Talk

September 7, 2011

Mail Boxes Etc., previously located in Playa Langosta, has moved to Tamarindo, to the green building 100 meters east of Ferretería Fertama, on the main road between Tamarindo and Villareal. They can ship and receive packages and documents from all over the world. Best of all, you can shop online and receive your purchases here in Costa Rica with little hassle. Mail Boxes Etc. also offers digital services and a wide variety of office supplies for sale. For information, call 2653-4679 or email info@mailboxesetclangota.com.

Legendary surfer Robert August has a new home at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp. Three times a week, the star of the film “Endless Summer” teaches seminars on the history of surfing. Every Friday, August gives a shaping clinic where people are invited to watch and learn how surfboards are made. 

“This is a really cool way to keep hand-shaped boards alive. Having Robert here is good for the region. This town is here because of the guy,” Witch’s Rock owner Joe Walsh said, citing August’s inclusion of Tamarindo in the “Endless Summer” sequel that helped promote our town to surfers the world over.

In restaurant news, Addy’s has moved further into Tamarindo. Now you can find its great Cuban-style sub sandwiches in the food court across the street from Plaza Conchal. Qué Tuanis Restaurant in Huacas is now offering to deliver its typical Costa Rican food to Tamarindo; call 2653-6231 for menus and to place an order. And Voodoo Lounge is now open at 6 a.m. for breakfast, serving North American or Tico-style dishes.
