A place for...

Guanacaste’s Grandpas 


In Villareal, in the surroundings of Tamarindo area, a group of volunteers inspired by the old people of their community organized to create the Diurnal Center for the Attention of Senior Citizens, a place that offers the elder a pleasant environment and entertaining activities to spend the day surrounded bypals of their age.


According to Javier Abad, creator of the project, the objective is to improve the levels of independence and to promote the physical, psychological and social well-being of the people who attend. Even though the Center is in Villareal, it is open to the neighbors of other surrounding communities.


Being Guanacaste the biggest Blue Zone of the planet (areas where citizens show an outstanding longevity), the availability of centers for senior citizens, like this one in Villareal or the upcoming in Playas del Coco, are even more significant since the unusual number of elders among Guanacaste’s population.


If you wish to collaborate with this initiative, contact the Association of Education and Commitment with Integral Social Development (ECODESI) - -  (506) 8791 3949
