Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings
Hotel La Colina is now holding a barbecue every Sunday at noon for ₡5,000 ($10) per person, tax and tip not included. The menu includes southern-style pork ribs, Russian potato salad, grilled veggies and beer.
Eight-year Manuel Antonio resident Donna Porter has developed a concept for a commercial botanical garden in the Quepos area, and the idea is steadily gaining momentum. Donna was the founder and first executive director of the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and director of Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce, Florida. For the past six years, she has been creating unique private gardens in Manuel Antonio, but her real passion and desire is to develop a public botanical garden for Quepos.
The garden not only would be a tourist draw for the area, but also would benefit the community educationally, scientifically, environmentally, culturally, recreationally, socially and aesthetically. The concept plan is for a 12-to-14-acre garden that would include a visitor center with a café, gift shop and area for educational workshops. A site search is under way, with the main criterion that it be easily accessible to all. Investors are also being sought for the project. This is an opportunity for an investor to make a positive, permanent and tangible difference in Costa Rica while making a significant profit as well.
