What guest(s) do you remember most?
I remember many of the guests who are frequent visitors like Brian C., David C., Gene and Joseph, Monty E., Roger H… There are several more faces I can see, but I don’t remember the names. I recently saw a little girl in the restaurant that I recognized from when she was a baby. It was very cute to meet her again now that she is 5 years old. We even had a photo of her and her parents when she was a baby that we showed her and it was a wonderful surprise.
Have you ever tried surfing?
I’ve never tried to surf because I’m a little nervous. All the instructors ask to take me on a lesson but I haven’t gone yet…
What makes working at WR special?
My work is made special by all the people who are involved in the hotel. Th guests, the employees… everyone! And it starts from he top with the owner, Joe, who has always been very pura vida with us. I’ve felt like part of the Witch’s Rock family since the beginning. If one of us had a bad day, there’s always have someone to talk to and offer support.
What’s the secret for Costa Ricans’ longevity?
I believe that staying lively and working makes us live longer. We’re always doing something with our hands and it keeps our mind clear. Also the Guanacaste typical music. We love to dance, party and be happy in our culture.
What’s your favorite menu item at Joe’s?
All the plates are very good but I love the seafood since we get it fresh. You need to try the shrimp and rice (arroz con camarones) , seafood soup and ceviche.
