Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

September 14, 2011

Hotel California has come up with an interesting weekly event: speed dating, every Saturday in September from 7 to 10:30 p.m. The event consists of five-minute rounds at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30, with 12 women and 12 men per round. Entry is free. The hotel will offer specials on beer, cocktails and alcohol-free beverages. This is a nice way for people who don’t want to go to bars to meet a potential mate or some new friends.
