Jacó Happenings

Volunteers are needed in the Central Pacific zone. This weekend, Christian Surfers from Costa Rica will be in Playa Jacó helping to keep our beaches clean-Saturday June 8 at 8:30 a.m. at Calle Bohio in the center of the beach. Isaac Chinchilla from The National Wildlife Refuge in Playa Hermosa needs people to patrol the beach Friday and Saturday nights during the turtle nesting season. If you would like to volunteer, please call Isaac at 6050-9776 and he will coordinate a short training about it and help you get started in the volunteer process.  The Jacó Firefighters are also looking for volunteers. They meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the Fire Station on the Highway and can be reached at 2643-5951.

Joice Solano has started Costa Rica SUP’ers Club offering stand-up paddle board training, lessons and tours. She can be reached at 8831-0164. Ballet lessons are being offered at Teatro Jacó for children aged 3 and up, no experience needed. For more info, call 2630-9812.

Something exciting to look forward to: The Healing Cuisine will be in the Central Pacific zone in July hosting Food Workshops at the Casa Limón in Playa Hermosa. These Live Organic Raw Food Workshops will be held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday July 1, 2 and 3 and will feature Living Foods Made Easy, Decadent Desserts and Healthy Food For Kids and Families. They will include expert instruction by Joanne Gerrard Young, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady‘s personal raw food chef.  The demonstrations will include simple techniques for the preparation of organic, raw, gluten free and vegan recipes. For more information, call Jen at 8479-1039 or visit www.thehealingcuisine.com.
