Costa Ballena Bulletin

June 13, 2012

Great News! Two of Costa Ballena’s outstandingly beautiful beaches have earned the Blue Flag ecological standing. Thanks to program leader Jonathan Cordero and the exhaustive efforts of Hotel Cuna del Angel, Playa Hermosa has won its first star in this wonderful program.

Thanks to Hotel La Cusinga Ecolodge, Playa Arco has obtained the prestigious Blue Flag for the first time. The program requires that beaches are kept clean, the water is tested for safe swimming, and safety signs are displayed. The Committee of the Cusinga was recognized with an award at the Casa Presidencial and Playa Arco became one of the top-10 beaches in Costa Rica.

Crime Awareness and Prevention (CAP) is a local group of concerned and determined citizens, residents, nonresidents, frequent visitors and business owners who want to ensure our area stays safe and beautiful and to prevent crime. The mission of CAP is to assist in assuring the safety and security of every law-abiding citizen, resident and visitor in Costa Rica by unifying and building communities and promoting crime awareness and prevention, thus becoming recognized and valued as an influential voice on a national level.

Our local police need additional funding and equipment. Costa Rica is addressing crime problems, but to ensure our standard of living is maintained, much effort is needed. We must put a “CAP” on crime. Check out www.caponcrime.com to help.

Yum! Suki Madden has opened her restaurant in Rincón de Uvita. Suki hails from South Korea and brings her culinary skills to our area, including sushi and other light and nutritious Asian meals, some with as few as 150 calories. Come by, and don’t forget to bring your shopping bags to gather up goodies at the farmer’s market every Saturday morning.

Domestic Animal Welfare Group and the community recently lost our dear friend and animal lover, Dan Kelly. Our hearts go out to his wife, Cheryl, and son, Jim. We will miss him dearly.
