Tamarindo Talk

December 20, 2012

Car owners who have passed the gas station being constructed on the road to Huacas have wondered for quite some time about when it will open. Currently, drivers have to go all the way to El Lleno to fill up their tanks. Enrique Rodríguez, owner of the new gas station, will open it in January. All that remains is to obtain a final approval from the Municipality of Santa Cruz, and an inspection by the Environment and Energy Ministry. Rodríguez expects both to go smoothly.

In Tamarindo Bay, you will notice two new sailboats. The Antares is an 80-foot Sparkman and Stephens schooner. You can book at Le Beach Club or call 7060-5545 or 7015-1478. There is more information at AntaresSailingAdventures on Facebook. Also, you can check out the 48’ Admiral racer/cruiser catamaran from Sailing Hibiscus. Make contact at [email protected], 8707-2242 or www.sailinghibiscus.com.

Fantastic efforts spearheaded by Mark Schneider and Gian Luca Arcieri have resulted in repaired and drivable roads from Tamarindo to Langosta. After negotiations with Santa Cruz, the Municipality provided the machinery and 68 hours of manpower to get the road fixed. Currently, Schneider and Arcieri are raising money to make the sewers better and the road more durable. To help, contact Arcieri at Koi Restaurant at Aqua.

We’ve got some really bad news for Mexican food lovers. Gil Sánchez has closed his very popular and very delicious restaurant, Gil’s Burritos. He and his food will be missed and we wish him luck on his next endeavor.
