Music for Coronavirus Aid

Many of you have seen Fatiniza perform at one of the many live music venues in Playas del Coco and the Papagayo Region.  Unfortunately we are not able to enjoy live music for the moment and certainly live performers are one of the most hardest hit sectors of the economy.  Is spite of all that Fatiniza decided to write a song that would bring some happiness and joy to everyone and at the same time help out those in dire need during these trying times.  

We at Tank Tops Flip Flops have met Fatiniza and her team at various live music festivals and shows while doing our local charity work selling Tank Tops Flip Flops apparel.  So when she saw that we were doing coronavirus food drives for our local area she contacted us to see if she could help.  So the idea of releasing a new song and giving all the proceeds to coronavirus charities was born.  You will see the links to be able to purchase the song below.  Approximately 50% of the proceeds will be split between two local charities – Tank Tops Flip Flops and Junto por Guanacaste.  This will cover the area from Playas del Coco and surrounding communities to the Potrero and Brasilito areas.  So check out the song and please download it to help out.  69 cents!

Costa Rica Coronavirus Update

Cream and sugar with that sir?

COSTA RICA CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Currently as of today, we have approximately 375 cases in Costa Rica with 2 deaths. There have been 2 confirmed cases in our Canton (county) of Carrillo, both of them being right here in our little town of Playas del Coco. The President of Costa Rica has made some tough calls, but I support him 100%.

  1. Restrictions on all vehicle movement from 5 pm to 5 am. This is mostly to stop people from going out to socialize.  They are also limiting day time driving to one day a week, based on your last number on your license plate. You can only drive for basic necessities like groceries and pharmacies.
  2. All beaches and public parks are CLOSED. There are no exceptions to this.
  3. All churches and religious temples are closed, even though Holy Week of Easter is coming up.
  4. No large gatherings or social events; all soccer games cancelled, concerts postponed etc.
  5. The Borders are CLOSED to all foreigners.
  6. All bars, casinos and nightclubs were forced to close.
  7. All alcohol sales have been banned across the country.
  8. Banks and grocery stores, now have special hours for seniors only, and most have shortened the total working hours. Our local Mercados are limiting the amount of people who can be in the store at a time, and only one person per family can shop. This eliminates groups gathering in these public places.
  9. Any foreigner with residency, who leaves the country during this crisis, will immediately lose their status!

Boy did this last one set off a shit storm.
