We've just had very disturbing news from four friends who are visiting us here in Nosara, Costa Rica. On their way home from a two-day road trip to the south of the Nicoya Peninsula, they stopped at Punta Islita's beachside restaurant today for lunch. (We had taken one of them to the hotel restaurant two years ago and he was eager to share this lovely spot with the others though they decided to stay at beach level rather than go up the hill to the hotel this time.) They parked in the restaurant parking lot which was attended by a guard employed by the restaurant. Yet, when they came out from lunch they found that everything they had left in the car had been stolen. Thank heaven, they hadn't left anything of significant value except a new and lovely briefcase -- the thieves got only clothes, cosmetics and overnight bags along with this briefcase. They were told that the parking lot has a security camera in addition to the guard but that the camera showed nothing of this theft. We trust that the hotel management will investigate this strange-sounding occurrence further, though our friends are not feeling confident that this is being taken seriously at the restaurant.
