Tamarindo Talk

September 22, 2011

Protest continues against the Claro cellular tower built at Casa La Carolina, between Villa Verdes II and Los Sueños I condominiums. The focus now is on getting a lawyer; organizers are looking for money to hire one. If you are interested in donating funds for this purpose, contact Chris Spilsbury at 2653-0289, 8348-3362 or olivos@racsa.co.cr or Natalie Lynn at 2653-0241, 8841-3861 or kcasatamarindo@gmail.com.

Dragonfly Bar and Grill will be closed for the month of October, so get over there this week to get your fill of its fabulous food, including delicious three-course meal options for less than $30. Residents get a 10 percent discount. Hours are 6-10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, with happy hour on Fridays and Saturdays, 6-7:30 p.m.

TIDE Academy – which stands for Total Immersion of Life through a Dynamic Education – opened Sept. 5 in Tamarindo and caters to students from sixth grade and up. Seeing the need for lifeguards, the school is working with Witch’s Rock Surf Camp to get that program back together. For more information on the school or the lifeguard program, visit www.tideacademy.com or email tideacademy@gmail.com.

It can be hard to find a late night meal in Tamarindo. Burger Beach, across from Plaza Conchal, has the solution, offering burgers, fries and mozzarella sticks into the late, late hours. No more going hungry after 9 p.m.

Eddie Davis, formerly of Hidden Coast Realty, has opened Coastal Property Management in Plaza Tamarindo, Suite A-21. Call him at 2653-4607.
