Tamarindo Talk

August 15, 2012

If you have to leave town and have been wondering what to do with your dog, now there’s a solution. Hospital veterinarian Cavallini in Villareal has just opened Dogs Hotel. Dogs are boarded in 4 x 2 meter cages 1 meter off the ground, and will be allowed to run free in a fenced, 2,000 square-meter yard. To check in, call 2652-9009 or 8815-5713.

It’s getting to be that you can’t turn around in Tamarindo without running into a healthy place to eat. The latest arrival is La Bodega, located in front of Hotel Nahua. Feast on homemade foods for takeaway, fresh juices, and artisan gourmet groceries. The products are 100 percent Costa Rican and organic. Looking for something specific? Call 8619-2084 or 8825-5419.

Amigos de la Educación has announced its 2012 scholarship students. The organization gets much of its funding from the annual Have-A-Heart Golf Tournament. But it also solicits donations to help kids and schools in their prevue. The scholarship program provides for the education of nine high school students, four university attendants and two bilingual grade-school children. It aims to finance a university education for each student.

The 2012 university scholarship winners are Eddy Leal Segura from CTP 27 Abril, Oxirys Moraga from Liceo de Santa Cruz, Johanna Villalobos from Colegio Villareal, Yanner from Liceo de Santa Cruz, Luis Andres from Liceo de Santa Cruz, and Luis Ángel from Colegio Villareal. To contribute, email AmigosEducacionCR@gmail.com or call 2653-1945.

Witch’s Rock Surf Camp guest Melissa Freake apparently got more than surf lessons – she got love! Last week, during the Camp’s live broadcast on Radio Dos, Freake asked surf instructor Percy Arias to marry her. He said “Yes!”

Congratulations to Dr. José María Garita, who this month celebrates the 10-year anniversary of his Farmacia El Cruce in Huacas.
