After the inauguration, the attendees presided over the introduction of 10 new bike officers for the area at the Central Park. The mayor and the security minister commended and congratulated the business community, the National Police officers and the residents of Jacó for their contribution, participation and partnership as they continue to work together to keep Jacó safe.

Bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries and date nights are being held at Marianna and Clint Stallard’s Cacao Lounge, located in Jacó beach in the Pacific Central Plaza number one. The concept is a floral shop and chocolate shop with a luxury lounge area to relax and enjoy some of the simple pleasures: Costa Rican chocolate, nature and flowers.

Chocolate is prepared daily from scratch and with love, Sicilian-style. Fresh shipments of flowers are received every Thursday. Mango flowers, mini key lime pies, cheesecakes, brownies, chocolate bananas and watermelon on a stick (dipped in chocolate) are just a few of specialties. Coffee at the Cacao Lounge is special in that it is from Marianna’s friend Belkis Young’s Atenas Coffee Farm, Siempre Joven. The shop also caters special parties and events. Hours are 10 a.m.-9 p.m., each day though February. Afterwards, they will be closed on Tuesdays. Free Internet service is available. For more information, call 2643-4381.
