Expats need not become bored this weekend.
In Atenas the Atenas Charity Chili Cook Off will be held in the Quinta Roma Vista park Sunday. The event benefits a local children’s shelter called Hogar de Vida, and visitors get to sample the chili entries. More information is available here: www.atenaschilicookoff.com.
At Playa Garza de Nosara on the far Pacific coast, there is the Triple Corona de Surf de Nosara and a masters tournament. The events start at 7 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
At the Polideportivo de Nicoya Sunday, some 60 cyclists from five countries will be engaged in BMX WAR 2014.
They will jump, spin, surmount obstacles and do any number of bicycle tricks.
This weekend is the last before public school starts, so the parks will be full. The weather is expected to be warm during the day.
