SECURITY UPDATE

Last night a home [in Surfside] on Calle Mango (eastern end) was broken into while the renters went to dinner around 6:30 pm. They had just returned home from a 4 day trip out of town.The robbers removed a window and bars and climbed in through a small opening. An Apple MacBook 13” computer, a small tablet, Canon EOS 6 camera with extra lens, a gold diamond/ruby necklace and other jewelry. 

A suspicious white pickup truck was seen at that time. The Flamingo Tourist Police responded last night, and we are going to report it to the OIJ this morning.

LOCAL YOCAL HIGHLIGHT

With a new contest in the running, we thought we would not only introduce a great local company, but broadcast an opportunity for creative minds in the community to have his or her design(s) printed on shirts sold in many locations in Costa Rica. A little pocket cash is always a bonus too:

You may already know Mini Super Apparel by their trademark “Agua de Pipa" Tees, but this company is much more than a one-liner. Shirts not only have a cool look and feel (metaphorically and figuratively) for tourists, but you will also see lots of locals and expats wearing them with pride—as tees are locally constructed and printed.

Keeping things fresh, Mini Super Apparel is always offering new designs, and with this contest further maintaining their pura vida love. “Read More” for contest details from the company…
