¿Qué Pasa en Quepos? – April-May-June 2020

April 2020 coverTo all our advertisers, loyal readers, and staff: our prayers and best wishes go to you and your families through this pandemic we are all facing together.

COVID-19 (coronavirus) has forced us to discontinue the April printing of our magazine. We will be uploading the issue here for your enjoyment and to help our advertisers through this period of self-isolation.

We will be back to a newsstand near you as soon as possible. The economy before this unprecedented event was strong and with all the stimulus money being fed into the economy I am expecting a very quick return to normalcy to the world.

So let’s do our part to help the process by remembering to wash our hands often, to respect social distancing, and doing what we can to help those in need.

We are all in this together let’s get through it stronger than ever…PURA VIDA.

Peace and Love…D
