More and more live music is happening around Lake Arenal. On July 13, Grupo Tropicales from Alajuela played lively salsa music to a crowd extending to the street at Iguanas Restaurant/Bar in Nuevo Arenal. On July 21, a fresh Tilapia dinner with live marimba music (Los Choros) was scheduled for Restaurante Las Peceras near El Aquacate. Tomorrow night, Saturday, July 27, Gingerbread Restaurant will host the local folk rock group Caballeros sin Caballos (Scott Schillereff, Ed Yurica and special guest Jack Cash); music starts at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are always required at Gingerbread – 2694-0039.
Road crews are busy identifying and shoring up slope failures along the lake road (current project near Gingerbread restaurant, and spray paint markings along a bad section at Rainbow Bay). Lake area residents greatly appreciate these repairs.
The Arenal Association Sport Committee held a mountain bike rally on Sunday, July 14, with a ride from Hotel Rio Celeste near Tenorio volcano back to Nuevo Arenal. Jeff Spencer, local resident and committee member, organized vehicles to ferry eight bikes and riders to the starting point. While the bikers rode back via Guatuso, the drivers and a few others had a very interesting three-hour hike to see the Rio Celeste waterfall, and confluence where two clear volcanic streams react to form the sky blue river. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and a great day was had by all.
