Each area will have its own section. The publication is free to the public.  Contact Dawn Roberts at 8916-4322 or digits.ojochal@gmail.com to place an ad.

As they do every year, Safari Adventures will celebrate its anniversary with special activities. This year, festivities will take place at noon on Saturday, Sept. 29, and on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 a.m. There will be horseback riding, cycling and athletics, and a traditional ATV rally, plus typical meals and other activities on the Campo Ferial de Paquita.

All proceeds will benefit the family of Rigo Jiménez, a friend of the community who died earlier this year. For more info, contact Roger Arce of Safari Adventures of Costa Rica at safarimangrovetours@yahoo.com or 2777-7111.
