Our deepest condolences to the family of Ulrik and Steen Oldenburg for the unexpected passing of one of their family members, “Rafa” Isaac Sánchez, who died Sept. 25 after a motorcycle accident. Rafa worked at the Flamingo Marina Resort’s Monkey Bar and was well liked by customers, friends and co-workers, and adored by his family. The funeral service was held at the Catholic church in Belén, with the burial following the service at the cemetery in Filadelfia.
Eight amazing women have made their dream come true; after following an intensive four-month training course with Swedish trainer Maria Hakansson and the Do Good Now organization, in collaboration with the nonprofit CEPIA, these ladies are now offering manicures, pedicures and facials at customers’ homes. No need to drive or find a nanny – you can get high-quality service on the comfort of your own couch. This is also an excellent option for tourists staying at hotels or rental houses. For more information, call Yanet or Tomás at 8854-0206 (English), or Ana at 8632-4912 (Spanish).
Surfside-Potrero’s El Coconut owner Katharina has a saying: “Even in paradise one needs a vacation.” So, she is closing her Tamarindo location Sept. 18-Oct. 14 and her Potrero beach club location Sept. 28-Oct. 21. She will be reopening after she returns refreshed and recharged.
Also closing for low season are Mar y Sol and Angelina’s in Flamingo. Both restaurants plan to reopen in November at the start of high season. Other locations that are closed are El Castillo and the Shack in Surfside-Potrero and 7th Heaven in Brasilito.
