Arts and culture in brief: the week ahead in Costa Rica

June 16, 2016

Is dad a car fanatic? Take him to Plaza Real Cariari mall for a free display of more than 20 cars from modern to antique, plus tastings, gifts, indoor soccer and other activities (Friday, June 17 — Sunday, June 19). 

If he’s more of a sports fan, chill out with some ice hockey: on Saturday, the Castillo Knights Senior team faces off against the Pizotes of La Sabana at 7:30 pm at the Castillo Ice Rink in San Rafael de Heredia. For information, write mundodehockey@yahoo.com (Saturday, June 18).

Take him out to a nice meal at Barceló San José Palacio, which will offer various dad-centered packages throughout the weekend, from a buffet meal to a sushi menu to a grill for two, plus an evening on the dance floor (Friday, June 17 — Sunday, June 19).

The Guanacaste Concert Bands will celebrate Dad all weekend with a special series of concerts in Liberia, capital of the northwestern province, including everything from a sax quartet to traditional dancing to orchestras (Friday, June 17 — Sunday, June 19). 

Or head to the beach: the first edition of the Tamarindo Art Wave continues to fill the Pacific coast town with 50 painters, sculptors and other artists who – put up in hotels, restaurants and private homes all over town – will each create a new work of art during the festival (Thursday, June 16 – Saturday, June 18).
