ADI Updates

Written by Mariano

The last few months Asociación de Desarrollo Integral de Tamarindo (ADI) has dedicated their efforts around the theme of this quotation: “Love and respect for the community has united us in hope, in the possibility.” – Neema Namadamu. Namadamu is an advocate for peace and women’s rights in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Here’s a rundown of the latest activities from ADI, who have kept busy even in the low season: Security On October 14, the Security Committee had a meeting with the police force to continue to solve problems that affect our community.

In addition, fundraising efforts with the goal of hiring a private security company continue under the auspices of “Tamarindo Seguro 2016.”

The OIJ have no new news to report on their investigation of who murdered Barry Lawson, but they are still waiting for the results of the autopsy.

Lifeguards Committee:

Every day the Tamarindo Lifeguards continue to uphold safety for tourists and residents on the beach. In September, they rescued 14 people and attended 5 injuries. The next month, among the rescues was a 7-year-old girl, who was visiting Tamarindo from Playas del Coco with her family.

She drowned near Nogui’s restaurant and was all but dead. However, thanks to the quick action of head lifeguard Víctor Nunez Ramírez she was revived. He raced to the scene, administered CPR, gave her oxygen and got the child to a local doctor.

A group of volunteer lifeguards received a CPR course at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.

Maintenance and Cleaning Committee

ADI’s usual recycling program took place, as always, on the first Tuesday of the month, which were September 1, October 6 and November 3. Remember they take all types of recyclable material (cardboard, paper, aluminum, glass, etc.) as long as it is clean, dry and separated.

The collection is always from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in front of Banco Nacional.

The Farmer’s Market has some new vendors with natural products like coconut oil and granola, Venezuelan empanadas, chicken eggs and natural fiber fabrics. Come enjoy the fun and good buys at the Feria, located at the Alfaro Bus lot, every Saturday morning.
