It looks like high season has come early to Tamarindo, with hotels, businesses and the beach bustling with tourists over the Thanksgiving holiday. Let’s hope it keeps going through Christmas and beyond.
Kahiki Restaurant, on the road to Langosta, is being taken over by Lukas Levitt for dinner. You may remember that Lukas had the very popular Breakfast Grinds in the same spot, before the 2009 fire demolished the location.
Stop by Corey Hahn’s Haven’s in the Las Olas commercial center next to Super 2001. He serves lunch with daily sandwich specials and a beer and wine menu for afternoon lounging.
Claro, which has been under scrutiny from many residents for its placement of a cell tower in a residential neighborhood, is about to open a Tamarindo office in front of La Palapa hotel. In addition, Celeste Móvil, also called Kolbi, has opened an office next to HSBC bank.
Local resident Craig Ledbetter has written a book about his stepfather’s experience in Nazi Germany. It is available for sale at Jaime Peligro bookstore.
