There is a lot of talk around town – and we know how that goes! – that the Municipality of Santa Cruz is planning to get together with the Public Works Ministry (MOPT) to put an asphalt layer on the 220-meter road that goes from Tamarindo to Langosta. They are supposed to get this underway in about two months. Although the sub-base was finished a couple months ago, with the rain it has already developed new potholes. At the time, MOPT had planned to pave the road, but there was a bureaucratic error made that prevented this from happening. Let’s see what happens now.
Frijoles Locos in Playa Grande has initiated a great new idea. For $75 per person, they will arrange a Playa Grande Day Pass, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds.

To get in on the deal, call 2652-9235 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
