This week we highlight another good eatery in Arenal. A new Italian take-out restaurant, Los Platillos Voladores (2694-5005, firstname.lastname@example.org), has opened along the lake road two doors up from the German Bakery. Its sign is on the fence beneath an older sign (“Artesinias Arenal”). Hours are Tues.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sun., 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; closed Mondays. Amy the friendly proprietor sells whole roast chickens, lasagna, jarred pasta sauces, fresh pastas, desserts, olives, and a variety of beef, chicken, pork and fish dishes for take-away, parties and events. Main course prices are C3,000 to C7,000 colones.
The U.S.-based volunteer group Led2Serve (http://www.led2serve.org/) is participating in various community service projects in the Lake Arenal area. During its first week the group assisted in a reforestation project, building a community garden, building a children’s playground, painting a community mural and renovating a missionary’s home. Thank you so much for your contributions to our community!
Nuevo Arenal was saddened by the recent death due to pneumonia of long-time resident José Angel Varella. A well-respected and hardworking husband, father and grandfather, his friendly wave and shout to passersby were his trademarks. We offer our heartfelt sympathy to his wife Melba and the family for their immense loss. Our community will miss him.
