Tamarindo Talk

July 5, 2013

Today and tomorrow, there’s an invitation-only contest in a “secret spot” called Surf For Youth. The winners will split the $1,000 prize money. However, the main focus of the event is to raise money and awareness for the CEPIA surf program, run by the contest’s main sponsor Waves Costa Rica, which is owned by former national surf champion Andrea Díaz. If you want to check it out and find out where the contest is taking place, call 8829-4610.

It’s good to hear that the Garden Plaza is getting used. Even though there are a slew of new clothing and jewelery stores in that location, there is still some bad news coming from that spot. Locals were surprised one day when they arrived at the Garden Plaza to find that the Scotia Bank branch had closed and gone. The latest attempt at a restaurant, the Middle Eastern place called Gazebo, is as of now closed but could reopen this month.

Over at Black Stallion Hills, located just 10 minutes from Tamarindo, there are a number of great activities available for the public. Most popular is the BBQ Horseback Ride, which takes you around the beautiful ranch and up the hills followed by a great meal. In addition, the property now has a canopy zip-line. For more information call 8869-9765 or email blackstalliononline@yahoo.com. You can also find information at www.blackstallionhills.com.

Great news! It’s really happening, there is construction in the road from 27 de Abril to Villareal. The inauguration of the work was celebrated with a kick off ceremony headlined by Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla.
