Is Jaco Costa Rica Beach Water Clean? Apr 02

unsafe-beach-conditions1

YES! Claims the local goverment and the AyA, wich is the abbreviation for the Costa Rica water and sewer ministry. After the latest round of water tests in and around the river mouths and various locations up and down the beach, the AyA determined that the beach in Jaco is safe. Was that a long sentence or what? 

As many of us know who live here in Jaco that the rivers that spill into the ocean are heavily polluted with septic wastes that are untreated. Just walking by over a river here in town, you can smell the terrible odors that are associated with untreated sewage. Luckily for Jaco and all of the surfers, the government realized they needed to get firm with violators who are polluting the rivers. Last year, Jaco was in the news because of very high levels of bacteria coliforms in the water tested at the beach. The result was a media frenzy here in Costa Rica and an embarressment for many in the tourist trade. After all, Costa Rica stands for ecological protection and sustainability. What one preaches they better practice when they invite the media to the dance. 

The tourisim minister, the tourism council, and even local leaders were humbled in light of the dangerous bacteria levels becoming public knowledge. There is nothing like potential loss of face here in Costa Rica to motivate a public official or council. Many people questioned AyA’s motivations for releasing the test results to the media without consulting the local government first. Some say it was the word war between the Garabito municipality and the AyA on who was going to take care of the drinking water for the community that led to the public disclosure of the test results. more…

Presidential Inauguration Shaving Parties? Jan 16

zohan-shaving-parties-jaco-costa-ricaThat’s right, even this “G” rated site could not pass up this party concept blazing across the world and landing in Jaco, Costa Rica. Apparantly, nightclubs and bars are using the United States Presidential Inauguration and a play of words as a way to promote their establishments by offering freebies to patrons who offer to shave their groin hair on Tuesday, Jan. 20th.  Hence, the play on words “No More Bush!” While this is a hilarious idea, the reality for me is much scarier. With visions of Zohan’s sisters taking off their skirts revealing their monstrosity’s…oops this is a “G” rated site. 

Well I will certainly report back if there are accidental circumcisions whether  primary or secondary due to the level of alcohol intoxication during the procedures. I will also check with the Police Department to see if there is an increase in pubic related disorderly conduct complaints and with the Health Department for increase in complaints of…okay enough of that angle.

no-more-bush-after-hours-partiesSorry but I will not be posting photos of these events but maybe there will be some links to share from the various Jaco nightclubs here like Plankton, Liquid, or Le Loft. Check back next week for the results!
